Detroit, Mich.–The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Michigan announced the winners of the 2014 Build Michigan Awards, recognizing excellence in commercial construction throughout the state. Six projects and construction teams were bestowed awards during the AGC of Michigan’s Annual Meeting today in Detroit.

“The Build Michigan Awards represent some of the most outstanding commercial construction projects completed in our state in any given year,” said Vince DeLeonardis, AGC Chairman. “These projects help revitalize cities, enhance college campuses and contribute to our daily quality of life.”

The awards recognize new construction and renovation projects in building construction ($10 million or less), building construction (over $10 million), environmental, construction management, and design-build. Awards also are considered for first time entries.

Projects are judged on: meeting the challenge of a difficult job, excellence in project management,  innovation in construction techniques, sensitivity to the environment, responsiveness to client needs, and the contractor’s contribution to the community.
