Established in 1991, Build Ohio celebrates construction through an awards program that recognizes contractors for excellence in construction and a gala that reflects upon the accomplishments of the construction industry throughout the year. The Build Ohio awards program recognizes commercial contractors for excellence in construction. Winning projects set the standard of excellence in construction in Ohio defining a standard that many strive to achieve. The awards program is open to all AGC of Ohio contractor members in good standing. A panel of highly regarded retired construction professionals selects the winning entries according to how they meet (and surpass) the Build Ohio criteria. Winning projects receive the bronze and green marble Build Ohio statue. 

The Build Ohio Celebration gala culminates the year. More than 350 contractors from across Ohio attend the annual event, which includes a cocktail hour, dinner, and program recognizing the accomplishments of the commercial building industry. A video presentation highlights the projects entered in the awards program, and the winners are announced for the first time that evening.
