Oregon Chapter - Projects of the Year 2007
The APWA Public Works Project of the Year Award was established to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects by recognizing the alliance between the managing agency, the consultant/architect/ engineer, and the contractor who, working together, complete public works projects. Although it has evolved over time, awards are currently given in four divisions:
And five categories:
Eligibility Public works is defined as the physical structures and facilities that are developed, owned, and maintained by public agencies to house governmental functions and provide water, power, waste disposal, transportation, and similar public services in accordance with established public policy.
To be eligible for nomination, a project must have been “substantially completed” and available for public and/or agency use within two calendar years prior to nomination. If a project has multiple phases or segments, then “substantially completed” will be construed as that point when the final phase or segment is 90% completed and available for public and/ or agency use.
Each year, an award review committee reviews nominations submitted to the Oregon Chapter and selects an award winner in each division/category for which nominations are submitted.
