2021 BUILD Wisconsin Awards Winning Entries Announced

MILWAUKEE, WI — The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Wisconsin announces the winning entries for the 2021 BUILD Wisconsin Awards.

The BUILD Wisconsin Awards program is open to all AGC of Wisconsin General Contractor and Specialty Contractor Members in good standing. Entries were evaluated by a panel of judges assembled by the AGC of Colorado and were based upon four primary criteria: Sustainable Practices, Craftsmanship, Innovation, and Meeting Difficult Challenges.

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 BUILD Wisconsin Awards program, this year’s winning entries consisted of projects that were completed in either 2019 or 2020. All winners will be celebrated at the 2021 BUILD Wisconsin Awards banquet on September 16 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
