The PINNACLE Awards program was established in1999 by the Nevada Chapter AGC to honor the “Best of the Best” in northern Nevada construction projects, recognizing construction leadership, excellence and community spirit. Independent judges measure entries based on safety, craftsmanship, challenges met, client relations, innovation and “green” building practices. General contractors vie for the PINNACLE Award in two divisions: under and over $5 million. Specialty Contractors vie for the Pinnacle in the over $500,000 and under $500,000 category. Projects compete in these categories:

  • Excellence in Project Management
  • Meeting the Challenge of a Difficult job
  • Sensitivity to Environment/History/Culture
  • Excellence in Client Service

New this year is the AGC Partnering Award, modeled after National AGC’s Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award. Contractors honored with this award stand out for their ability to resolve conflicts, practice quality communications with all stakeholders and the ability to get many groups to achieve one goal.

About the AGC

The AGC and its 300 member firms represent nearly half of the Washoe County construction jobs. PINNACLE entries represent the “Best of the Best” projects and bring together Northern Nevada’s top general contractors, specialty contractors and building professionals.

The Nevada Chapter AGC was formed in 1939 by a group of Nevadans intent on replacing the dangerous gravel roads that connected Northern Nevada with modern pavement. They evolved into the modern AGC, whose goal is to use skill, integrity and responsibility to build a better community. The Nevada Chapter AGC has been an active in national and regional construction issues including job site safety and worker health care, vocational education and recognizing the best in local building.  For more information, log on to www.nevadaagc.org.
