Building Excellence Awards

The City of Boise is accepting nominations for the 12th Annual Building Excellence Awards program. We are looking for building projects that increase the quality of Boise’s built environment. The awards program recognizes businesses and business owners that recently built a new building or completed a building remodel, upgrade, or addition that made Boise safer, more accessible to all citizens, a unique design or environmentally sustainable.
