MSOE – Hermann Viets Tower and Hmong American Peace Academy take home awards at the 23rd Annual Top Projects ceremony.
The Daily Reporter’s Top Projects Awards are the region’s foremost and comprehensive built-environment competition, honoring the very best construction projects completed in the past year. From infrastructure work to high rises, the recognition program puts the project in the spotlight and tells the stories of how the vital structures came to be, and the challenges the teams had to overcome. Along with the many companies and individuals involved in these projects, we are proud to have had the opportunity to be the general contractor on these projects.
