The Global Best Projects Awards, organised for the fourth time this year by the ENR (Engineering News Record) magazine, found their owners.
SOCAR Tower, built by Tekfen Construction in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan, and opened by President Ilham Aliyev on May 30, was selected as the “Best International Office Building Project of the Year” by the ENR magazine.
Projects from 5 continents and 15 countries were awarded in 18 different categories. While the projects were evaluated based on a number of criteria from safety performance to use of technology, and from design to construction quality, aspects such as the benefits of the buildings to the public and the construction industry were also taken into consideration in delivering the awards.
The awards will be handed out to their recipients at the ENR Global Construction Summit, which will take place on October 11.
Once again we congratulate and take pride with the project team, and wish them success in future projects.
