Other Specialty Construction
For the specialties below, please enter in either "Specialty Construction - Commercial" or "Specialty Construction - Industrial" regardless of type (commercial, industrial or residential projects in the trade). All entries will be combined into one general trade (e.g. "Carpentry," not "Carpentry - Commercial" nor "Carpentry - Industrial").

  • Carpentry
  • Concrete
  • Precast Concrete
  • Doors/Windows/Glass
  • Masonry
  • Plumbing
  • Thermal and Moisture Protection

The number of entrants does not affect the ability to receive an award because entrants do not compete against other contractors, but rather, on a straight point-level threshold basis.

Best of luck this year!
