Aug 08, 2018

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) names 13 exceptional electrical construction projects spearheaded by members from around the United States as NECA 2018 Project Excellence Award recipients.

NECAproject-excellenceawardlogoThe NECA Project Excellence Awards were created in 2017 to acknowledge the most highly skilled electrical contractors in the country. Companies are recognized for their commitment, professionalism and ingenuity in delivering an electrical project across 11 different market sectors.

“After our successful launch last year, it’s exciting to showcase another group of projects that are worthy of NECA's 2018 Project Excellence Awards,” NECA CEO John M. Grau said. “They represent the best of our industry.”

"Only projects completed in 2017 were considered. Judges took into account aesthetics, application, difficulty, innovation and originality," said Mir Mustafa, NECA Executive Director of Business Development.

“The contractors responsible for this year’s remarkable projects demonstrated impressive skill and an undeniable passion for excellence,” Mustafa said. “NECA is proud to honor them and their work.”

This year’s winners will take the stage during the associations annual conference and trade show, NECA 2018 Philadelphia (Sept. 29-Oct. 2).
