In celebration of our 20 year anniversary, each month we’re sharing 20 of our employees favorite things -- from tools to travel destinations and everything in between.

This month we highlight 20 of the most popular construction projects built since 1996.  Our team put their heads together to vote on spaces that display dramatically unique features, challenging and careful coordination and awesome partnerships with our clients. 

It was no easy feat to rank this list. If we missed any projects you enjoyed working, please share in the comments below.
