CEMEX has announced 32 finalists that participated in the International Edition of the 2019 CEMEX Building Award, a competition that recognises the best and most innovative construction projects worldwide.
This year’s award will feature 14 countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Spain, France, Mexico, Montenegro, Panama, Poland, Puerto Rico, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, and the UK.
The CEMEX Building Award is one of the most recognised competitions in the construction industry, fostering a culture of sustainability and innovation by recognising projects and professionals who are leading the way to new and better industry practices.
The International Edition of the CEMEX Building Award is divided into five categories: residential housing, economic housing, building, collective space, and infrastructure. It also has four special awards: universal accessibility, innovation in construction, social value, and sustainable building.
Some of the representative projects are the Palacio de Congresos and the Hotel Palma de Mallorca in Spain; the Water and Light Pavement in France; and the Finca La Caja School in Costa Rica, among others.
The jury that determined the winners was made up of 16 judges with extensive experience in the construction sector from six different countries: Mexico, Puerto Rico, Colombia, the US, Panama, and the Dominican Republic.
The awards will be held in Mexico City on 7 November 2019, after announcing the winners of the Mexico edition.
The Mexican sculptor Miguel Ángel González created that statuette that is presented to the winners. Combining black marble and concrete, the award’s inspiration comes from humans’ transformation of the materials at their disposal into elements of architectural, construction, and design expression.
