Outstanding Project Awards: 2015-2016

Each year at our Annual Conference, CalGeo puts the spotlight on the best geotechnical projects in the state with our Outstanding Project Awards. A panel of peers selects the year's finest work in a number of categories, providing winners with a powerful new marketing message, and everyone with the opportunity to learn from exciting, innovative approaches to challenging situations.

Call for Entries

Check back at this site for more information and entry forms available in early-December, 2015. We are not accepting Outstanding Project Award Entries until January, 2016.

We are currently accepting Outstanding Project Award Entries until February 13, 2015. The Awards Program is open to all member firms of CalGeo, except member firms on the judging committee. We also invite non-member firms to participate. Any project will be considered for the award, but only projects completed and constructed within the previous five calendar years are eligible. The rules have been revamped to include more types of projects (including design-build projects), and we have also lowered our entry fees and streamlined the process, for easier entry.
