Finance & Commerce announces Top Projects of 2022

Finance & Commerce | May 1, 2023

The construction industry was once again challenged by increased costs and an ever-evolving hybrid work model in 2022. Housing needs continued to increase while office space hung in limbo. However, despite facing a myriad of challenges, Minnesota builders completed a variety of projects, including apartments, medical facilities, school renovations and more. Among those finished projects, an independent panel selected 50 honorees for Finance & Commerce’s annual Top Projects awards.

Projects honored this year include 610 Medical and a renovation to Historic Fort Snelling; several apartment buildings, and a number of manufacturing and distribution centers.

When selecting the projects, the panel of judges looked at the degree of difficulty, creativity in design, innovative construction techniques, cooperation among contractors and management, and sustainability efforts.

The projects will be featured in a special magazine and in a series of stories and photos in the Finance & Commerce daily newspaper and on the F&C website starting in July. The people and companies behind the projects also will be honored at a July 20 event at Quincy Hall in Minneapolis.
