The primary team members on the project including Watts Construction, Washington County, and Simpson Coulter Studio attended the AGC of Utah Awards Breakfast on January 18th, 2024, where forty-four awards were given out to projects in the construction industry. Entries were judged based on a description of the project, overall safety of the project, overcoming challenges and teamwork, innovation & contribution to the industry/community, construction quality & craftsmanship, and function and aesthetic quality of the design. Watts is honored that the Washington County Administration Building & Parking Structure project received this award.

Both of these awards are not only a great achievement for not only Watts Construction but the entire project team including Washington County, Simpson Coulter, and the dozens of dedicated trade contractors and consultants that made this project a success.
