For 10 years Idaho Business Review has recognized the largest – by the dollars — construction projects in Idaho. The projects and their numbers can be seen as a measure of our state’s growth.
Forty submitted projects broke ground or were completed in 2013, and had construction costs of more than $1 million. Eleven were in government, nine in office/retail and 20 in the private category.
“Construction is vital to our state, our economy and our future,” said Idaho Business Review Publisher and Vice President Sean Evans. “These construction success stories are worth noting; in fact, they deserve our full attention.”
There will be a publication featuring all 40 in the July 18 Idaho Business Review. On July 24 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., there will be an awards ceremony at the Riverside Hotel to honor the projects and those who helped take them from dream to blueprint, and from rebar to reality.
