2021 Construction Awards

Presented by Hayward Lumber

The 2021 Construction Awards are the highlight event of the year on the Central California Coast. The event was incredible! We had 160+ guests ranging from contractors, subs, architects, landscape suppliers, designers, city officials, and more. It was a fabulous night with great drinks, food, and fun together. Members submitted projects in 12 main award categories with one winner per category. There are four additional awards being presented: Builder of the Year (highest scored project by judges), Subcontractor of the Year (highest scored by judges), Members Choice (member voted), and Industry Professional. Projects are judged anonymously by judges in the industry with expertise, experience, and skill. Thank you to everyone who helped make the night such a success. Can’t wait to see you next time!!!
