BLT Built Design Awards
The BLT Built Design Awards recognize the expertise of all professionals involved in the realization of outstanding projects, on a global basis — from architecture firms and interior design experts, to construction products and project management.
Our objective is to become the world’s most inclusive awards platform for the building industry, identifying and promoting outstanding projects annually. We want to raise awareness and shine a well-deserved spotlight on all the professions involved in the realization of new infrastructure.
We focus on celebrating projects, people, and their passion for the industry, and through our rigorous judging process, we recognize those that have gone above and beyond normal, expected standards in the last five years. Selected by our esteemed jury of architects, designers, manufacturers, and leaders in construction and architectural fields, the annual winners will receive the BLT Awards trophy, extensive publicity showcasing their designs and project to an international audience, and more.
BLT Built Design Awards runs four annual programs:
- Architectural Design of the Year is awarded for single projects (conceptual designs, in-progress, or completed projects) created in the last five years; they must be aesthetically impressive, showing clear evidence that today’s challenges have been taken into consideration — such as social impact, environmental friendliness, energy utilization etc. The prize is given to individuals and/or firms who have pushed the boundaries of great architecture! This prize is open to both professionals and students.
- Interior Design of the Year awards talented designers whose projects push boundaries and demonstrate clear evidence that the many challenges of today’s world are taken into consideration. These challenges include how to increase the quality of personal interactions and how to facilitate these interactions, in order to connect and collaborate in spaces designed to merge lifestyle with work style. This prize is open to both professionals and students for projects created in the last five years.
- Construction Product of the Year recognizes the most outstanding products and materials, whether durable, sustainable or smart. Every architect and designer knows it takes spectacular construction products to make their design vision a reality. From roofing to solar panels, glazing façade to flooring, electrical systems to the concrete surface, as long as your product is a part of a building, it is eligible for entry. This prize is open to professionals only.
- Project Management of the Year is awarded to the most advanced project management techniques and systems overseeing the planning, design, and construction of a building, from its beginning to its end. From health and safety to purchasing and delivering software, implementation of sustainable processes, scheduling and design software, this award is dedicated to all those companies behind the scenes playing a crucial role in the industry. This prize is open to professionals only.
