UAE contracting giant ASGC was named Highly Commended Contractor of the Year in a close race with ALEC. ASGC, which won top honours at last year’s ceremony, was recognized by the jury for its proven track record of delivering complex projects. 

ASGC also bagged the winner’s trophy under the Hospitality Project of the Year for its work on Dubai Arena. And its Bluewaters project won it the Highly Commended Residential Project of the Year title.

The shortlist for Contractor of the Year at the 2018 awards included, in addition to ALEC and ASGC, Al Naboodah Construction Group, Al Tasnim, Arabtec Construction, China State Construction Engineering Corporation Middle East, Laing O’Rourke Middle East, Lalbuksh Voltas Engineering Services & Trading, and Larsen & Toubro Saudi Arabia.

Each year, the Contractor of the Year category attracts the biggest names in Middle Eastern construction. The judges of Construction Week Awards 2018 were given the unenviable task of identifying the contractor that has best demonstrated operational excellence, commercial success, and continued improvement within the region’s contracting sector.

An independent panel of judges, comprising eight of the Middle East’s foremost construction experts, selected winners in 13 categories at the Construction Week Awards 2018.
