Revealed: Shortlist for the ME Digital Construction Awards

The Big Project Middle East (BPME) editorial team has revealed the shortlist of companies, individuals and projects for the second edition of its ME Digital Construction Awards. Over 80 submissions were received when nominations closed in early May, the BPME editorial team revealed.

The gala dinner is scheduled to take place on 26 June at the Habtoor Grand Resort, JBR, Dubai, and will celebrate individuals, companies and projects that have been shortlisted, as well as reveal the winners in each category.

Compared to the inaugural event which featured 12 categories, the second edition boasts 15 distinct categories, and will recognise excellence across the construction supply chain.

“The inaugural ME Digital Construction Awards was very well received, and based on that positive outcome, I decided to grow the event in terms of the number of categories to better cover the digital construction segment. It was great to see the positive response to this move, with the number of nominations growing over last year in each category. This meant that the two rounds of eliminations were challenging for the editorial team and our panel of judges,” said Jason Saundalkar, Head of Content at Big Project Middle East.

“Given the enthusiastic response to each of the categories, and the editorial team’s desire to recognise excellence across the construction supply chain, we will be recognising excellence across the construction supply chain. Congratulations to the individuals and companies who’ve made the shortlist, I look forward to revealing the full shortlist and winners on 26 June,” added Saundalkar.
