What is APEX Awards?

In 1994, AGC Houston created the Awards for Project Excellence (APEX) to honor firms in our industry for their excellence in constructing. The biennial event recognizes member companies for their consistent excellence in construction, their valuable contributions to the community, and their demonstrated commitment to skill, integrity and responsibility. In addition to recognizing construction projects, AGC Houston selects one individual in the community as a recipient of the Master Builder Award.

The award categories are broken down by General Contractor and Specialty Contractor Category and entries judged by key construction services users from the Houston community. Construction projects are located in the AGC Houston territory and judged according to the following criteria:

• Quality of workmanship in construction

• Contribution to the community and/or environment

• Quality of the management process in serving the client

• Safety records

• Timely completion

• Completion within budget

• Difficulty in construction

• New technology or work processes used on the job

• What uniquely qualifies project for an award
