Project of the Year 2018


An introduction to this year’s contest and winners

EW is pleased to present the 2018 Project of the Year contest winners in this issue. We received many outstanding entries in all nine categories. Judges scrutinized each entry and, again, had difficult decisions to make. Each entry exemplified team members joining together to overcome challenges, while being focused and innovative to complete their projects 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 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 next year’s competition. The project should be composed 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 details will be available in the June issue and at after April. The submission deadline is September 30. We look forward to your entries.
