The 32nd Annual Excellence in Construction Awards Gala celebrates the best in merit shop construction, honoring the most outstanding construction projects in South Texas. ABC South Texas invites your company to showcase your work in the Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards program. This program recognizes and publicizes the outstanding work performed by our members.

Entering your projects in the EIC Award program is a great way to market your company’s high-quality work and gain public recognition for the project owner and your team who put it all together. Projects are judged on a variety of criteria such as safety, personnel management, quality control, scheduling, and degree of difficulty. Winners at the Chapter level are eligible to move on and enter their projects in the National Excellence in Construction Awards.
