An awarding experience
There are awards and then there are the Construction Week India Awards. When we set out to launch our awards last year, we had a clear-cut vision right from the very beginning: it would not be just another awards event. We knew it was an uphill task, but that didn’t keep us from working towards our mission to become the best platform for identifying and recognising the finest in the world of construction. We wanted to bring together people from the industry to acknowledge the best within it, chosen by none other than the greatest in the business and celebrating excellence in nation-building. And that is what we did.
The Construction Week Awards 2011 were a runaway success and received an overwhelming response from everyone in the industry. With active participation through hundreds of nominations, an eminent jury, and a packed audience, we set a benchmark for ourselves in the very first year.
This year, Construction Week India Awards 2012 will be a bigger, better and more illustrious event that will feature nominations across 19 award categories from all the key infrastructure and real estate players, projects and companies; a jury panel that will be chaired by Mangesh G. Korgaonker, director general of NICMAR; and the who’s who of the industry gathered in attendance.
This is one event you really will not want to miss.
Here’s what our jury has to say
Pradeep Singh, vice-chairman and managing director, IDFC Projects:
“As India plays catch-up after centuries of neglect, the construction industry is at the forefront of the country’s efforts to build out the infrastructure as well as much needed commercial and residential real estate. Construction Week is doing a great service to the Industry by recognising its leaders through the Construction Week Awards. The awards create excitement and satisfaction, and provide an impetus to the industry to do more and fast. I am happy to be part of this process as a member of the Jury.”
Anuj Puri, chairman and country head, Jones Lang LaSalle:
“It is always a pleasure and privilege to be part of initiatives that recognise the excellent efforts being put in by our developer community. I am satisfied with the judging norms that have been laid down for the Construction Week India Awards and am certain that we will be able to shortlist the most credible winners.”
Dr Mangesh G Korgaonker, director general, NICMAR
“It was a privilege to be part of the jury last year since it was the first year of the awards. I believe the foundations have been laid for the Construction Week Awards to emerge as the most coveted and sought after awards in the construction world.”
Firdose Vandrevala, chairman and managing director, HIRCO
It is critical for us in the industry to set standards for performance, measure them and recognise those who meet and exceed these standards. I am therefore delighted to be part of this process by being a member of the jury team.”
Sachin Sandhir, managing director, South Asia, RICS
"The Construction Weeks Awards have established themselves as the premier award function for this industry because of the quality of the jury, thorough the assessment process for validating projects and the unbiased independent approach followed by the jury to choose the winners."
