About the Project of the Year

The Masonry Institute of Hawaii Project of the Year Award recognizes a project that has been constructed in Hawaii using local contractors and workers that has had a positive impact on the masonry construction industry, the community and clients.


The MIH Project of the Year Award is open to masonry and concrete projects of all types and sizes that have been substantially completed and in use within two calendar years prior to nomination. If a project has multiple phases or segments, then “substantially” completed will be construed as that point when the final phase or segment is 90% completed and available for use. The project must have been constructed using local masonry contractors.
