Excellence in Demolition

NDA's Excellence in Demolition Award is the industry’s prestigious recognition program which honors NDA members who have demonstrated significant environmental conservation and community involvement in 2017-2018. The Awards are presented annually to companies that have made a significant "quality of life" impact on their community. NDA members are recognized for their leadership and innovation in “green” development and for efforts to better their local and regional environment.

Any public or private project is eligible to qualify. Projects are eligible even if environmental work is not their central mission. Applicants are encouraged to submit more than one project for consideration.

The submission deadline has passed for this year's program. Please check back for more information on next year's program.
