The Big 5 Impact Awards have been created to inspire the Middle East, Africa and South Asia’s construction industry to achieve new goals, recognise the communities of the future and promote transformation for economic growth.
Categories explore the businesses creating the smart communities of the future, how we use technology and digitalisation to enable more sustainable construction practices, as well as honouring inclusion and diversity, partnerships, individual leadership and young construction professionals.
