CEMEX launches call for the CEMEX Building Award 2021

February 16, 2021
CEMEX announced that the 2021 CEMEX Building Award registration, Mexico and International editions, is now open.

The call for participation in the CEMEX Building Award is open for all construction professionals who can register their work and find participation bases online at https://www.premioobrascemex.com/

Registrants may participate in the Residential Housing, Affordable Housing, Building, Collective Space, and Infrastructure categories, as well as four special awards: Universal Accessibility, Sustainable Building, Construction Innovation, and Social Value.

The CEMEX Building Award honors the best construction projects in Mexico and the world, as well as the professionals who make them possible. Since its creation in 1991, the award has become a benchmark in the construction industry, recognizing projects that stand out for their design, innovation and promotion of environmental preservation while offering better solutions for their users and communities.

The contest promotes creativity and encourages the development of best construction practices while tracking those innovations that will become the new building standards of tomorrow.

The competition was suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, the projects registered last year will be considered this year, and those who left their registration incomplete will be able to finalize it during the current call.

In 2019, the Mexico edition had 874 registered projects, from which 17 works won awards, including BioEngineering Center ITESM Campus Querétaro, Central Pavilion in Metropolitan Park "La Mexicana," Urban Renovation of Veracruz Waterfront, and West II Emitter Tunnel in Mexico City.

In the International Edition, 32 projects from 14 countries participated, including Congress Palace and Hotel Palma de Mallorca in Spain, Water and Light Pavement in France, Finca La Caja School in Costa Rica, and Gramalote Marketplace in Colombia, among others.

Under the slogan "Ideas that build life," the CEMEX Building Award recognizes those works that begin as mere ideas and end up being construction projects that give value to those who interact with them.
