As part of our efforts to encourage sustainable construction practices, this year The Concrete Producer, with our sister publication Concrete Construction, introduced the GreenSite Project of the Year contest. Honoring the concrete community's innovative contributions to green building, sustainable building practices were recognized that further establish concrete's role in creating long-lasting, eco-friendly structures that will stand the test of time.

Five projects were chosen as The Concrete Producer's best projects of 2008. Each represent a specific category: Best Commercial Project, Best Institutional Project, Best High-Rise Project, Best Multi-Family Housing Project and Best Residential Project.
