Finalists Announced for AGCMO 20th Annual Construction Keystone Awards
ST. LOUIS, MO - Innovation, ingenuity and excellence are just a few of the attributes associated with the construction projects selected as finalists for the 2017 Construction Keystone Awards. Finalists include a range of projects including health care, laboratories, parks and recreational buildings, utilities, energy facilities as well as highways and bridges.
The Construction Keystone Awards are presented by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Missouri. The submissions, spanning eight categories, represent the highest level of professionalism, craftsmanship and quality in construction by Missouri's general and specialty contractors. A panel of judges selected these elite projects as finalists last week, and will continue their review of additional data provided by the finalists in order to determine the winning project in each category.
Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Construction Keystone Awards honor the highest achievements of Missouri's construction firms and salute their contributions to the built environment. The facilities and infrastructure built by member contractors create new jobs, support economic growth and enhance the quality of life in our communities. Missouri's construction workforce is comprised of over 115,000 persons, according to data recently released by the AGC of America.
Winners of the 2017 Keystone Awards will be announced and celebrated at the AGC' s Construction Awards Gala at the Ameristar Spa & Casino in St. Charles.
"Each year, as innovation and technology continue to transform the construction industry, the judging of submissions and selection of finalists become more demanding. The challenges presented to our contractors and their ability to successfully meet themis the essence of the Keystone Awards," said Len Toenjes, AGC President. "The ingenuity and craftsmanship represented by this year's finalists continue to exemplify the spirit of the Keystone Awards. Our finalists represent the very best in the construction industry today."
