Industry Awards


The Platform to Recognise Innovation and Project Excellence in Egypt's Construction Industry

Submissions deadline: 15 June 2020

The Big 5 Construct Egypt Awards is the leading recognition platform for innovation and project excellence in the country’s construction industry. The awards are an opportunity for the entire industry to come together.

Our independently judged awards will honour the amazing project work that has been completed over the last three busy years. They will showcase the growth and achievements of the people and companies who have made all of those projects possible.

Our panel of expert judges will use the awards to honour the work of project owners and contractors, their consultants, as well as architecture practices and engineering firms.

Our judges will be drawn from the highest levels of the industry, working independently to arrive at decisions based on their years of experience, technical expertise and the quality of your entries.

The event will culminate in an awards ceremony and dinner to be held on September 22, 2020. Take the time to create a strong entry and you could be rewarded with a place on our shortlist, or even one of our awards.
