FTBA Highlights 2022 Best in Construction Award Recipients

Best in Construction Awards Spotlight Companies & Individuals for Most Innovative, Complex & Impactful Projects in Florida

Tallahassee, Fla. – The Florida Transportation Builders’ Association (FTBA) today highlighted the recipients of its 2022 Best in Construction awards. The Best in Construction awards, selected in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), are presented annually to contractor members for outstanding work on specific transportation system projects.

“On behalf of FTBA, I’m honored to highlight the companies and individuals who worked on and created the most innovative, complex and impactful projects around our state and present them a Best in Construction award,” said FTBA President Ananth Prasad. “These companies upheld the highest standards as they worked to improve our transportation systems throughout Florida.”

FDOT District Offices nominate FTBA contractor members for Best in Construction awards in 16 different categories ranging from major bridge to utility coordination. The FDOT State Construction Office gathers a committee on an annual basis to review the project nominations and grade them on a rigorous set of criteria to determine top-tier projects and contractors who have gone above and beyond.

“We look forward to recognizing the hard work and accomplishments of the recipients, and we greatly appreciate our partnership with FDOT in the award process and selecting the best of the best each year,” added Prasad.

The following companies received Best in Construction awards in the following categories:

  • Major Bridge: GLF Construction Corporation for their work on the Miami River Bridge Replacement in Miami-Dade County

Award recipients will be recognized at FTBA’s 2022 Annual Convention in Amelia Island, Florida, in August 2022.
