2022 Top Projects award finalists announced 

Alx Stevens//August 11, 2022

As Idaho continues to grow, so does its construction industry, and we at Idaho Business Review are pleased to share some of last year’s inspiring projects through our 18th annual Top Projects award program. Top Construction Projects in Idaho

These 34 finalists for the 2022 program are considered outstanding in one of the following categories: 

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

To be considered for an award, the project must have been built in Idaho — substantially completed between June 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022 — and valued at more than $1 million in construction costs.  

Winners are determined by a selection committee of local industry professionals. The selection committee rates each project based on scope of work, overcoming challenges and obstacles, adherence to budget and time constraints and overall project quality. 

The top three projects in each category will be announced during a special awards event in October, including Project of the Year. Last year, the 2021 Project of the Year was Micron Center for Materials Research at Boise State University. 

Each project will also be eligible for a People’s Choice Award, chosen by event attendees. This award is open to any project submitted to the Top Projects contest. Voters are asked to select one project among all five categories (infrastructure/utility, private, public, renovation and transportation). 

Idaho Business Review is also pleased to continue highlighting industry professionals through our third annual Specialty Contractor of the Year award, which will also be announced during the awards event. Last year’s Specialty Contractor of the Year was TVR. 

The 2022 Idaho Top Projects awards event is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at Boise Centre East in Boise. Online ticket sales are open: squadup.com/events/2022-top-projects.
