Submit Top Projects Application

IBR Top Projects honors the top construction projects in Idaho, substantially completed in 2016. This is a “who’s who” reference guide for the top construction projects in Idaho from the previous year. This premier awards program offers exclusive opportunities to promote your firm or product to the region’s best construction, engineering and architectural firms.

Awards go to the top three projects, as determined by an independent jury of Idaho industry leaders in design, engineering and construction, in the following five categories:

  • Private Building
  • Public Building
  • Infrastructure/Utility
  • Transportation
  • Renovation

The project with the highest score overall will be awarded Project of the Year.

All finalists will be honored at an awards event Sept. 21  and will be featured in the 2017 IBR Top Projects magazine published with the Sept. 22 Idaho Business Review.
