Viewpoint Announces 2020 Construction Award Winners
Over the past few years, Viewpoint has honored several of its client companies that have overcome significant project challenges, showcased innovative building or operational practices, leveraged modern technologies to create success stories and more. Each year, dozens of companies submit their own stories for consideration for the Viewpoint Construction Awards.
This year, winners were awarded from three distinct categories: most challenging project, most innovative use of Viewpoint technology and the greatest pivot on a project, representing how many construction companies had to make major changes to their operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are this year’s winners:
About the Process
Projects and stories were evaluated by seven judges, two of whom were past Viewpoint Construction Award winners: Dustin Fisher, lead software engineer for Pan-Pacific Mechanical and Jeff Cann, CIO for Encore Electric.
“I was very impressed reviewing the submissions, as it’s clear that there are a lot of truly innovative projects happening across the country that are revolutionizing the way the construction industry is using and adopting technology,” Cann said. “It was an honor to be given the award last year, and even more so to give it out this year given the extraordinary circumstances we’re all working under today.”
The sudden shift that contractors had to make amid the COVID pandemic in 2020 was also in the spotlight with regard to judging all three award categories.
“Judging this year’s entries was really tough given the challenges that our clients had to face in such an unpredictable year,” said Matt Harris, Viewpoint chief product and strategy officer. “From having to construct a temporary COVID-19 alternate care facility in just three weeks, to building a major ship dock in remote Alaska, our clients continue to impress us with their abilities to use innovative technology to overcome enormous engineering feats and achieve solution-driven outcomes, often in record time.”
