06/14 - 09/01/22


Application phase (digital)

Event organizer

Nemetschek Group & The B1M

Entries are open until August 26

The program aims to highlight the world’s most impressive and inspiring construction stories. It is looking for amazing projects, ideas or initiatives that show the best of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry over the past twelve months. Its goal is to showcase the story that highlight the innovation of the construction industry and can serve as lighthouse project for its digital transformation.

Entries are now open and will be closed on August 26. Three shortlisted contenders will then have a short video feature created on their entry for distribution across The B1M’s and Nemetschek Group´s networks. Reaction and feedback from The B1M’s audience, followed by a final judges’ deliberation will determine the winner. The award ceremony will take place on November 2, at the Nemetschek Group’s headquarters in Munich, Germany.

“Construction isn´t very good at shouting about itself. Most people take this critical sector for granted and only ever hear about its mistakes. We want to change that by showcasing the most incredible AEC story.”

“Every build project is a unique creation, often pushing the limits of our capabilities and requiring new approaches. This award highlights and celebrates the innovative ways our industry overcomes challenges and improves the way we shape the built world."

The submissions will be judged by a renowned panel including Don Jacob, Nemetschek Group, Fred Mills, founder, and Managing Director of the B1M, Maria Lehman, president-elect of the American Society of Civil Engineers, engineer and TV presenter, Jacqueline Glass, professor in construction management at the Faculty of the Built Environment at London City University, and Salla Eckhart from Microsoft.
