Construction Projects Represent Top Innovation and Quality Construction by Missouri’s Contractors

Innovative, resourceful and results-oriented are just a few ways to describe the contractors executing the construction projects selected as finalists for the 2021 Construction Keystone Awards.  Finalists include health care, education and recreational facilities; commercial buildings; industrial and manufacturing facilities; and a broad range of infrastructure projects, including roads, bridges, water, sewer and energy plants.  

The Construction Keystone Awards are presented by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Missouri.  A panel of five expert judges selected these outstanding projects as finalists last month, and later this summer will continue their review of additional data provided by the finalists in order to determine the winning project in each category. 

The submissions span 10 categories focused on the work of AGC member general contractors and specialty contractors. The facilities and infrastructure built by member contractors create new jobs, support economic growth and enhance the quality of life. Missouri has more than 13,300 construction firms producing an economic impact of $12.2 billion (3.7 percent) of the state’s GDP of $332.1 billion.

Winners of the 2021 Keystone Awards will be announced and celebrated at the AGC’s Construction Awards Gala scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 4 at the River City Casino & Hotel in St. Louis.

“Our contractors and their workforces deserve special recognition for the work they performed last year, often under difficult circumstances,” noted Len Toenjes, CAE, AGCMO President.  “Despite COVID-19, which presented particular challenges on our work sites, they managed to introduce innovation, beat schedules, and work through many supply chain issues. Our owners, contractors, safety personnel and our workforce really stepped up to keep the work going, despite the pandemic. At the same time, innovation and technology continue to transform our industry, as evidenced by these finalist projects. After all, the challenges presented to our contractors and their ability to successfully meet them is the essence of the Keystone Awards.
