EIC Awards

Celebrating Excellence in Construction

Click here to view the full program of winners!

The ABC Carolinas Chapter Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards is a yearly competition in which general contractors and specialty contractors submit their projects for recognition. The EIC program is the premier competition within the Carolinas construction community that recognizes outstanding projects ABC members have built.

Each year, ABC Carolinas Chapter members nominate their best projects via an online application describing the unique characteristics and quality of their projects.  Applications are judged by impartial members of the construction industry, including prominent engineers and architects, according to the criteria for each award. Awards given in any category may be an Honorable Mention, an Award of Merit, or a first-place Eagle Award.  The ABC Carolinas Chapter also recognizes two specialty awards:  ABC Carolinas Design-Build Award and ABC Carolinas Best in BIM Award.

The annual EIC Awards Gala held in November is an opportunity for entire project teams—including owners, design and engineering partners—to be recognized and collectively celebrate all award-winning projects.  At the Gala, Project of the Year Award winners are announced for a general contractor and for a specialty contractor.

ABC Carolinas sets the bar for Industry networking, engagement, training, and future success. The combination of general contractors, sub-contractors, vendors, and suppliers is second to none!

Not only is ABC the leader in our industry as it relates to Safety, Workforce Development, and the protection of the Merit Shop. It is also where I have found the highest quality subcontractors, vendors, and suppliers to help us deliver the best projects to our clients. ABC Carolinas and its Members continue to lead the construction industry in every way.

The networking opportunities and professional relationships I’ve developed would have never happened without ABC Carolinas. I am proud to be a member of a trade organization that fights for its members.  I am constantly amazed at the pool of knowledge that surrounds me when I attend an ABCC function.  If you care about the construction industry, you should be a member of ABC Carolinas.
