WATSONVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Granite (NYSE:GVA) has been recognized with two Construction Risk Partners Build America Awards by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The Build America Award honors AGC members who have completed the most impressive construction projects in the building, highway and transportation, utility infrastructure, and federal and heavy divisions.
Granite was first recognized for its work on the Cosumnes River Bridge Replacement in Elk Grove, CA, which was named one of the most significant construction projects of 2022 by the AGC. As a result, Granite received the association’s Construction Risk Partners Build America Award for the Marvin M. Black Partnering Excellence category for projects valued at more than $20 million.
“We are honored to have received this prestigious award along with Caltrans,” said Granite VP of Regional Operations, Carter Rohrbough. “The partnering mindset was adopted early in the preconstruction process, resulting in cost-saving innovations and project delivery to the traveling public two years early. The Construction Manager General Contractor (CMGC) procurement model facilitates the partnering process, and this project partnering award is a testament to this.”
In addition, Granite was also recognized for the I-5 & SR 11 Padden Creek Fish Passage Project, which was named one of the most significant construction projects of 2022 by the AGC. As a result, Granite received the association’s Construction Risk Partners Build America Award for the best environmental enhancement project.

We appreciate AGC’s national recognition of Padden Creek and its overwhelming success in Environmental Enhancement.”
