CEMEX has announced the international and national winners of the 25th anniversary edition of their CEMEX Building Awards at a ceremony in Mexico City. The CEMEX Building Award recognizes the best projects in Mexico and the rest of the world in five categories and with four special prizes. This year, the award received 480 entries in the Mexican Edition and 62 entries in the International Edition, including buildings constructed in 20 different countries.

The 2016 Awards honor the best architecture and construction projects built during 2015 that use concrete technologies in creative and innovative ways with a focus on sustainability and social well-being. Winners were selected based on the criteria of construction process, structural and architectural solutions, integral sustainability, and value creation for users and communities.

“Through the Building Award, CEMEX recognizes the collaboration of clients, contractors, and authorities, who turn ideas into successful and sustainable construction projects,” said Fernando A. Gonzalez, CEO of CEMEX. “During the 25-year history of the Award, CEMEX has witnessed noteworthy improvements in the building industry—from the widespread use of computer systems and innovative materials to the growing awareness of the importance of sustainability in all areas of our life.”
