CW Awards 2020: All the shortlists for the 17 categories

June 8, 2015by admin0

The biggest night in the construction calendar is almost upon us with just one month to go.

Anticipation has been building since the summer, and at last we are ready to toast the industry’s leading lights of the construction sector at the Construction Week Awards 2020 on the 9th December at the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai.

This year marks the 16th edition of the annual prizegiving, and competition for the coveted honours has proven to be just as fierce as in previous years.

This year, we have been inundated with submissions across all 17 categories despite the turbulence of 2020, paying testament to the respect these prizes have grown to command from professionals working across the sector.

Across our 17 categories, we received 156 nominations from 56 companies, which certainly made it very tricky to decide our shortlist.

We can also reveal the line-up of our independent panel of judges.

They are:

• Sachin Kerur, the head of the Middle East for Reed Smith

• Marcus Taylor, founder of FifthEdge

• Dr Fadi Bayoud, founder and MD of Strategic Anchors

• Dr Yasemin Nielsen, lead of EngD Construction at Heriot-Watt University Dubai and member of the Centre of Excellence in Smart Construction

• Ashley Williams, editor of Construction Week Middle East

• Catherine Workman, head of the Middle East for Pinsent Masons

Myself and our high-profile judges will be meeting on Sunday 15th November to crown our winners and highly commended for all 17 categories, which we will reveal at the awards.

We thank everyone who put their name into the hat for this year’s awards, and wish all nominees the very best of luck.

Without further delay, allow us to introduce the individuals and firms that have made this year’s Construction Week Awards shortlist:
