SHCA Industry Awards – Call for Nominations
Deadline for Nominations: Nov. 3, 2023
SHCA will present awards at the SHCA Industry Awards Banquet on Nov. 30, 2023, following the two-day Infrastructure Summit.
SHCA believes our industry deserves thanks and recognition for its hard work this year, delivering quality infrastructure projects across the province. Not only do members like you keep Saskatchewan moving forward, but you are also responsible for spurring the local economies of many small communities in our province.
The SHCA award program is designed to recognize innovative road projects and exemplary people that place the road industry at the forefront of Saskatchewan’s social and economic development.
The awards are a prestigious industry accolade, but they also serve to remind a wider audience that the mobility everyone takes for granted would not be possible without the talent and commitment of our industry. By showcasing new technologies and creative solutions, they also serve as an accelerator of progress and new ideas.
All applicants must be SHCA members in good standing. Companies may self-nominate and may be nominated in more than one category.
Immediately following the nomination deadline, the forms will be reviewed by a panel that typically includes the SHCA president, some or all the SHCA Executive Committee, former directors or other industry experts. Based on the information provided, the panel will determine which nominee provided the most outstanding leadership in any/each of the categories listed below.
If, in the opinion of the awards committee, no suitable candidate or project has been nominated, the award shall not be presented.
- Asset Preservation & Maintenance Management
- Construction Methodology
- Environmental Mitigation
- Project Finance & Economics
- Technology, Equipment & Manufacturing
- Community Relations Award
