Award recipients are featured in a special construction-focused supplement in Atlanta Business Chronicle each June. This opportunity allow us to promote our award-winning members and the association to the publication's more than 170,000 readers. 

Only project completed in Georgia are eligible for AGC Build Georgia Awards. Member firms have an opportunity to compete in several different categories depending on the size of their firm, the type of project delivery method used, the type of construction, and contract amount of the project.
