In 1990 the Build New York Awards program was developed as a way to highlight the positive impact of the construction industry in New York State involving building and heavy/highway construction.

On October 15, 2010 the AGC NYS Board of Directors adopted the resolution to rename the Build New York Awards the Jeffrey J. Zogg Build New York Awards, in honor of late AGC NYS President Jeffrey J. Zogg.  This was done as a testament to Jeff’s nearly 40-year career of dedication and service to the association and a tribute to his drive for quality and recognition of the need to create partnerships within our industry.

The awards emphasize the construction team, not only the general contractor or construction manager, but also many others – the owner, architect, engineer, subcontractors, suppliers, and craftspeople – who contribute to the success of a project.

Since its inception, the Build New York Award winners have symbolized the best of construction projects in the state. Winning projects have included buildings and bridges large and small, new and renovations, public and private. Some projects are beautiful, others ordinary to the eye. But they all have one thing in common – they presented challenges that were met successfully by the winning company and the project team.

Each winner is presented with a trophy made of Lake Placid blue granite, set on a sleek black pedestal, in recognition of the company’s efforts. The award is meant to symbolize substance, quality, and dependability, just as a piece of New York granite does. With the program now open to all types of construction, the winners of the Build New York Award will truly be able to claim that their projects are New York’s best!

Since 1990, there have been:

  • Over 493 total entries
  • 129 winning projects
  • Over 128 participating companies
  • 55 different winning companies
