Projects from across 14 different countries selected by experts for their social, economic and environmental impact on life around the world.
Ten judges from around the world have chosen thirty projects from fourteen countries using elevated criteria to be given an Award of Merit for their contributions to the quality of life around the world.
The Awards, issued as part of the annual FIDIC Project Awards, showcase, reward and promote the achievements and successes of consulting engineering firms and their clients, and the important social, economic and environmental impact they have.
Commenting on the list of thirty, the chair of the judging panel made up of ten past presidents of FIDIC, William Howard, said: “The chosen projects reflect the excellence of the work of consulting engineers and the value that the whole engineering, construction and infrastructure industry brings to society by delivering world-class projects that make such a positive difference to people’s lives.”
After considering all the awards submissions and identifying 30 projects for the Award of Merit, the judges also identified 16 for an Award of Excellence – the highest status of projects that FIDIC bestows. Those sixteen will be revealed and celebrated, alongside the full thirty Award of Merit projects at a gala dinner and awards ceremony during the Global Infrastructure Conference in Singapore in September.
FIDIC CEO, Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE, commented: “The FIDIC past presidents who made up this year’s judging panel have done a fantastic job and thanks is due to each and every one of them for all their hard work. I am delighted that FIDIC is once again recognising brilliant engineering work with its Project Awards and I cannot wait to celebrate with all winners of the Awards of Merit during the FIDIC Global infrastructure Conference in Singapore in September.”
The countries with projects receiving awards are Australia, Botswana, Canada, China, Croatia, France, Ireland, Mozambique, Philippines, Singapore, Somalia, South Korea, United States and Vietnam.
