One of EcoDomus’ BIM to FM projects with TAV Construction – Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz Airport, located in Madinah, Saudi Arabia – received ENR’s 3rd annual Global Best Projects competition award. Global Best Projects identifies and honors the global project teams behind outstanding design and construction efforts during the past year.
A panel of five industry veterans with extensive global experience (some who worked on winning projects last year) completed the judging. The winners they have selected exemplify the challenges, risks and rewards of designing and constructing throughout the world.
The judges looked at projects from every corner of the globe in a variety of categories, from education to bridges. They evaluated each project’s safety performance, innovation, contribution to the community, design/construction excellence and how well the project team overcame challenges. The judges also looked at teamwork, and gave special emphasis to project teams comprised of firms based in a variety of different countries. The panel selected ‘Global Best Project’ winners in most of the categories. The judges could also honor additional projects with an ‘Award of Merit.’
The judges selected one of the main category winners as the Global Best Project of the Year. To be held up as the year’s ultimate achievement in global construction excellence, the winning entry had to excel in all criteria.
The Madinah Airport project won in the Airports/Ports category.
