2021 Build Hawaii Awards
The Build Hawaii Awards is the General Contractors Association of Hawaii's annual signature awards program that showcases the outstanding construction projects completed in the previous year. Despite the pandemic last year, so many great firms proved their resiliency and commitment to safety protocols and were able to complete a number of projects.
There were more than 50 entries in 22 award categories, ranging from small projects under $1 million to large projects over $50 million, public works projects to private sector projects, renovation projects to new construction projects.
The 18th Annual Build Hawaii Awards program proved there is no shortage of talent and commitment to excellence in Hawaii’s construction industry. All of our members deserve to be proud of our contributions to a better quality of life for those across our state.
