Nevada Chapter AGC honored northern Nevada's top construction projects of the past year at the 18th annual PINNACLE Awards. The winners were announced at an award luncheon held April 21 at the Atlantis Casino Resort.

This year, there were 15 entries from nine different companies. Independent judges from the Utah AGC Chapter measured entries based on safety, craftsmanship, challenges met, client relations, innovation and "green" building practices. Entries were judged for projects completed during the 2016 calendar year.

The PINNACLE Award separates projects into the three divisions of Specialty Contractors, General Engineering Contractors and Building Construction projects. Engineering Construction and Building Construction projects vie separately for the PINNACLE Award in two divisions: under and over $5 million. Specialty Contractors vie for the PINNACLE in the over $500,000 and under $500,000 category. Projects within these divisions compete in the three categories of Meeting the Challenge of a Difficult Job, Sensitivity to Environment/History/Culture and Contractor's Innovation.

The 2016 winners included:

Specialty Contractors
