An industry with as much history as cast-in-place concrete may appear as if practices and systems are no longer evolving. While new technologies are often brought to light using computers and advanced mechanics or logic, many times the most innovative solutions are initiated by the contractors themselves, tapping their experience paired with creativity to find a better way without necessitating significant capital investment or expense The Spirit of Innovation for the Innovative Contractor of the Year Award recognizes an individual or company for developing, creating or instituting new concepts. While nominations are open to suggestions from more than the previous year, preference is given for recent innovation. Recognition for innovation is encouraged for construction, management, marketing or any other business-related category.
