About the Award…
The Moles, a fraternal organization of the heavy construction industry, is the most prestigious organization of its kind in the world. Moles members are leaders in their profession who are dedicated to promoting the industry and supporting their colleagues through outreach programs and networking opportunities.
The Moles’ Awards were instituted in 1941 as “a means by which the organization signalizes the honor it pays to outstanding ability and accomplishment in the heavy construction field. Two Awards are voted each year – one to a non-member and one to a member. Through the years the presentations of the Bronze Plaque and the hand-illuminated parchment have, we feel, well served a two-fold purpose: to encourage noteworthy achievements, and to reward them with fitting symbols of what the honorees already have won – that most cherished of all prizes, the admiration and esteem of fellow-workers.”
