Earlier this month, category winners of ENR’s 11th annual Global Best Projects competition were announced, with project teams cited by a panel of industry judges for outstanding design and construction efforts of the past year from across the world.

From the 31 winning projects located in 23 countries, three have now been selected by ENR editors as finalists for Global Project of the Year, from a short list of candidates that the judges provided.

While all projects chosen from the record number of entries exhibited excellence in designing and building internationally, these three projects excel in almost all criteria by which projects were judged: design and construction quality, innovation, safety performance, industry and community benefit and overcoming challenges.

  • 1915Çanakkale Bridge, located in Çanakkale, Turkey. Submitted by Çanakkale Motorway and Bridge Construction Investment and Operation Inc., it also is Best Project winner in the Bridge/Tunnel category.
  • Surbana Jurong Campus, located in Singapore. Submitted by Safdie Architects, it also is Best Project winner in the Office category.
  • Tłı̨chǫ All Season Road, located in Tłı̨chǫ Region, Canada. Submitted by Peter Kiewit Sons LLC, it also is Best Project winner in the Road/Highway category.

The Global Project of the Year will be revealed for recognition, along with the others selected in project categories, at a free virtual event on Dec. 19. Everyone worldwide is invited to learn more about these global construction achievements and connect with project team members at the event. Best of all, there is no fee to attend.
