13th CW Architect & Builder Awards 2018 Nominations are now open

CWAB AWARDS: BIGGER . GREATER . GRANDER

The CONSTRUCTION WORLD Architect and Builder Awards were instituted by ASAPP Info Global Group in 2006. They are India’s most coveted awards for the architecture and building industry. The awards recognize the people and organizations responsible for the changing landscape of our country - the Top Architects and the Top Builders of India – and felicitate them. The growth of the event over the past 10 years is in tandem with the industry’s growth in India and has gained in stature and importance with each passing year.

The CWAB Awards, for the past 10 years, have featured the best speakers from across the globe who have spoken on various themes like INNOVISION, YOUTH, GREEN etc. The 10th year event celebrated the DECADE OF EXCELLENCE where we felicitated all our past winners – with over 50 of them; it was perhaps the largest gathering of Architects and Builders across the country on one platform.

We’re turning 13 this year! Proud to have our legacy of awarding India’s Top Architects and Builders continue. The 13th CWAB Awards 2017 will award the best and brightest minds not just across the Top Architect & Top Builder categories, but also across Noteworthy Projects which was introduced in 2016 to commemorate our new decade of CWAB. Along with awarding projects in metros, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, this category will also recognize the Top 5 Interior Designers in the country. The crème de la crème of the industry are selected through a perception-based survey, following by a stringent jury selection process.

Entries for the Noteworthy Projects and Interior Designer categories are solicited through a general call for entries against a minimum threshold for years in the business, range and quality of work among several other factors. Again, a jury makes the final selection.

It’s time to award the best in the business in a night of prestige and glamour!

This year the CONSTRUCTION WORLD ARCHITECT AND BUILDER AWARDS will have a great variety of excellent projects, varying from the frugal and sensitive to the robust and exquisitely detailed, with all submissions visited of great merit.
