MEED names UAE’s best projects demonstrating excellence across architecture, construction and engineering

31 national winners and 8 finalists from Dubai and Abu Dhabi have been honoured

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 12 March 2020 – MEED has announced the finalists and national winners for the tenth edition of its MEED Project Awards in association with Mashreq. These awards celebrate the GCC’s dynamic projects industry, which is valued at $3.1tn according to MEED’s project database.

A total of 88 projects from across the region have been honoured across 19 separate categories including Transport Project of the Year, Healthcare Project of the Year and Digital Infrastructure Project of the Year, amongst others. UAE-based projects dominate the honours, with projects such as The Address Sky View Project, CLYMB Abu Dhabi and Al Seef having received National Winner status in the Mega Project of the Year, Tourism and Leisure Project of the Year, and Social, Cultural and Heritage Project of the Year categories respectively.

With an estimated 6,722 active projects planned or underway in the region, this market is seen as strategically vital to the development of the GCC as it seeks to drive growth, provide new jobs, drive economic diversification, increase productivity, and place a greater focus on sustainability and social cohesion.

Key players in the UAE projects industry including ASGC, ADNOC Gas Processing and Emirates Steel constitute some of the shortlisted organisations that were selected out of hundreds of entries for their significant contribution to the region’s top-quality projects. Companies across Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman were also honoured across numerous categories for their extensive efforts in delivering some of the GCC’s best projects.

“Project owners, contractors and consultants across the region have delivered an extremely successful portfolio of projects amidst challenging economic conditions. The shortlisted companies have demonstrated ambition and innovation, and have achieved brilliance across architecture, engineering and construction.  We are thrilled to recognise the organisations that have been shortlisted and given National Winner status, and congratulate all the individuals and teams that have contributed to delivering these exciting projects that drive development in the region,” said MEED editorial director Richard Thompson.

The 88 shortlisted projects will go through a second round of judging before the winners are announced on the 10th of June.

“We are delighted to be a part of MEED’s tenth year of recognising the very best projects in the region. The MEED Project Awards truly represent a diverse range of sectors, encompassing everything from travel and tourism, to oil and gas, as well as digital architecture. The many companies that have been shortlisted as part of this year’s awards are a testament to the originality, variety and technical achievement of the GCC’s project market,” said Mohammad Al Shouli, Managing Director and Head of Contracting Finance at Mashreq Bank.

Overall winners will be awarded at a gala dinner ceremony, hosted on 10th of June 2020 at Address Hotel, Dubai Marina, Dubai.
