SAN DIEGO — The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) selected the best and most innovative Construction Management projects and programs of the year. Eligible projects were completed between June 12, 2009, and June 11, 2010. More than 130 entries were received for the 2010 Project Achievement Award program, and the final 15 winners were announced during the association’s Industry Recognition Banquet on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at the National Conference & Trade Show in San Diego.

Since 1999, these awards have been presented to projects that exemplify the contributions of professional construction and program management to the successful completion of a challenging project or program. The Project Achievement Awards are grouped into buildings and infrastructure, new construction and renovation across several budget size ranges, as well as program management honors for buildings and infrastructure and an international award.

"Congratulations to our standout projects. The number and quality of projects that were submitted this year sets the bar very high for what is expected to yield a successful project," Judges Mark Ballard, P.E., and Brian Koches, CCM concurred.
