A panel of industry judges selected 30 winning projects in 21 countries on six continents from a record number of entries for ENR’s 2020 Global Best Projects Awards. These exemplary projects demonstrate the risks and rewards—and the hurdles overcome—in designing and building internationally.

Reviewing entries in many market sectors, judges examined design and construction challenges, benefits to the local community and dedication to quality, innovation and safety, with a special emphasis on the diversity of global project teams and their collaboration.

For Project of the Year, judges and ENR editors chose the Urban Renewal of Colón, which rebuilt collapsed environmental infrastructure and substandard residential and commercial spaces—elevating conditions for thousands of residents of Panama’s second-largest city.

All projects were recognized in a virtual awards ceremony, which can be viewed free at enr.com or www.globalbestprojects.com.
