About the Craftsmanship Awards


For more than 80 years, the Building Congress & Exchange has honored exemplary craftsmanship within the construction industry, recognizing the talent and skill that goes into the outstanding workmanship in our region. That tradition continues as we expand our signature awards program to include team and overall project awards.

New This Year:

  • Team and Individual Nominations: BC&E is accepting team and individuals craftsmanship submissions. Work will be judged based on overall craftsmanship including the quality of work, complexity of both technical and design challenges and the level of difficulty with site conditions, constraints and time frame.
  • Overall Project Awards: Nominations will be accepted for overall projects where several different aspects will be considered including craftsmanship, challenges, innovation and client satisfaction. GCs, CMs and Acting GCs will get recognition at our awards ceremony.



Deadline for nominations is Friday, April 26, 2019.

Mark your calendar: The 81st Annual Craftsmanship Awards will take place on Thursday, November 7, 2019.


On November 1, 2018 the Building Congress & Exchange honored 20 craftsmen, 4 high school students, a Rising Star and the third annual Judge’s Choice Award.
