Today, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announced the new biennial GSA Construction Award program, which is seeking submissions this summer.
The program was created to honor outstanding achievements in construction, with a focus on quality and craftsmanship, collaboration and team dynamics, sustainability, innovation, and technology. The first Construction Awards ceremony will take place in 2024. (The longstanding Design Awards ceremony, which took place this year, will continue to occur in odd years.)
From small to large projects, from limited scope repairs and alterations to new construction projects, GSA will consider projects that resulted in highly successful outcomes while delivering best value and demonstrating excellent practice of the following core values: safety, construction quality and craftsmanship, collaboration and team dynamics, sustainability, innovation, and technology.
“Innovation and ingenuity are crucial to executing federal construction projects, and GSA understands how important our partners are to achieving successful outcomes,” said PBS Commissioner Nina Albert. “We are very fortunate to work with and alongside incredible professionals in all construction related fields and we’re thrilled to be recognizing them as they help us deliver for the American people.”
Projects can be submitted for three main categories: Capital Projects, Small Projects, and Alternative Financing Projects. Call for submissions will begin July 2023. Details will be shared on the GSA Construction Awards webpage.
The team members who best exemplify construction excellence in the delivery of GSA projects will be publicly celebrated at the biennial GSA Construction Awards Ceremony.
