Showcasing outstanding ABC member projects!

Members of ABC's Empire State Chapter consistantly put out some of the best work New York State has to offer. Our members, and their teams,  deserve recognition for delivering some of the most outstanding projects in the state.

What is Construction Excellence?

This competition showcases our members and the amount of high-caliber work built by the Empire State Chapter members. By calling attention to excellence, YOU set the standard for the construction industry.

Members submit completed or substantially completed projects to be judged against other outstanding projects by members from all regions of the Empire State Chapter.

Last year we received more applications than in any previous year and awarded more than 30 companies with a top award or as the runner-up.

Winners are recognized and presented with their awards at our annual Construction Excellence Celebration in front of 250 guests, including our Board of Directors, membership, and other esteemed guests.

This year's event will return to the Otesaga Resort Hotel in beautiful Cooperstown, NY, where winners are recognized by their industry peers as the best of the best, and all attendees - can also enjoy all the events of the day.

This year's event will include our golf tournament at the Otesaga's beautiful and challenging Leatherstocking Golf Course, a beer and liquor tasting with Cooperstown's own Brewery Ommegang and the Cooperstown Distillery, cocktails and cigars on the Otesaga's veranda, with beautiful views of the 18th hole and Otsego Lake, all capped off by a celebration to recognize Construction Excellence!

Why submit a project?

Winning a Construction Excellence Award puts the finishing touch on your outstanding project and signifies to the rest of the industry that your project was the best of the best.

Participation in the Construction Excellence Competition provides a unique tool in building relationships with key clients, and is a tremendous opportunity to build a strong culture within your company as your employees earn the public recognition they deserve for delivering a successful job.

A Construction Excellence Award can help grow your business by raising your company’s profile among industry leaders. Winners are recognized during the Chapter’s Construction Excellence Celebration in September.
