ENR Southeast Announces Winners of 2011 Best Projects Awards
After extensive review, the judges for ENR Southeast's annual "Best Projects" competition met Sept. 8 and determined this year's winners. The judges chose 35 winners from a group of more than 100 entries from the states of Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Alabama, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. They picked a top winner in each category, along with "Award of Merit" winners in many of the categories.
Also - Like last year, this year's judging was broken up into two panels. To determine a best overall award, each panel nominated two projects for the top prize. All of this year's judges are currently determining these four nominated projects, which include the following: the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Fla.; the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Campus East at Fort Belvoir, Va.; Merck & Co.’s Vaccine Bulk Manufacturing Facility in Durham, N.C.; and Pentagon Renovation, Wedges 2-5, in Arlington, Va. We will announce the group's selection as soon as it is available.
