According to the COAA, the Project Leadership Award is an annual awards program that recognizes owner’s excellence in project delivery. The Project Leadership Award program promotes leadership, professionalism and management excellence of owners involved in the design and construction process. The awards are open to both public and private owners who do not have to be members of COAA, and are open to renovation and new construction projects from any industry and of any size.

Projects nominated for the Project Leadership Award must have been completed and available for occupancy between January 1, 2010 and the nomination deadline of August 31, 2011.

Nominated projects were reviewed by an awards committee comprised of at least four COAA members selected by the COAA President. The North Terminal Program will be recognized with the award at COAA’s upcoming Fall Leadership Conference in Las Vegas November 9-11, 2011. COAA was founded in 1994 to serve the interests of construction project owners. For more information on COAA and the Project Leadership Awards Program, visit
