Project of the Year 2016


An introduction to this year’s contest and winners

ELEVATOR WORLD is pleased to present the 2016 Project of the Year contest winners in this issue. This year, EW received 27 entries in nine categories. Our highly regarded panel of judges scrutinized each entry and, as always, had difficult decisions to make. Each project entry exemplified team members joining together to overcome challenges, while going above and beyond to bring their projects in on time, on budget, 100% complete and to the clients’ satisfaction. Winners in each category have been presented with trophies commemorating their outstanding work.
The EW staff and the Project of the Year judges would like to congratulate and thank all entrants for their participation. We hope readers will enjoy some of our industry’s most significant accomplishments from the past year.
Participation in the contest builds company spirit and staff camaraderie, and improves client gratification. Start thinking now of any noteworthy projects your company is working on that may be eligible for entry in 2017’s competition. The project should be comprised of a vertical, horizontal or inclined transportation system consisting of an innovative design, special application or approach that solved a major problem or overcame a unique challenge. Complete contest entry parameters will be available in the May 2016 issue of EW and at after April, and, as always, the submission deadline is August 31. We look forward to your submissions.
