The Daily Journal of Commerce has named the 106 finalists for the 2021 TopProjects Awards competition recognizing the most outstanding projects completed last year in the Pacific Northwest. Category winners and overall project of the year will be announced in person on Thursday, September 9, the DJC’s first live event since the pandemic.
Now in its 24th year, TopProjects has become the region’s premier built environment awards competition. This year’s class includes projects covering 17 different categories. It highlights the exceptional work done in a truly unprecedented year, ultimately providing our region with the essential buildings and infrastructure we rely on.
âOnce I read the powerful nominations, it reinforced my feeling that TopProjects is the right event to pick up the pace of live events,â said DJC editor Nick Bjork. âThanks to supply chain disruptions, workplace safety protocols, and project schedule hurdles, the construction industry has come together and done some of the most remarkable work I’ve ever had. seen in my 12 years with the organization. “
Bjork added that there will be an option to attend the event in person or virtually via a live broadcast. The team is working with two event calendars in case the COVID-19 pandemic forces a switch to a fully virtual format. As always, he added, DJC will look to the CDC, state and local councils for event security protocols.
The 106 projects will now move on to the evaluation phase, where ten industry leaders will determine the top three projects in each category, the TopProjects Project of the Year and several small prizes for outstanding work. Participants will also have the opportunity to make the TopProjects People’s Choice award selection through real-time voting.
The event will take place Thursday, September 9, 2021 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Oregon Convention Center (777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland, OR 97232) in the Oregon Ballroom. In-person tickets will start at $ 125 with a virtual viewing option of $ 50. Food and drinks will be provided to participants in person. Sponsorships for the event will start at $ 1,795.
