CW Awards 2017: Judges gather in Dubai for final decisions
With the Construction Week Awards 2017 less than a fortnight away, our independent panel of industry judges gathers in Dubai to preside over this year’s finalists
With less than a fortnight to go before the Construction Week Awards 2017, our independent panel of industry judges gathered in Dubai to preside over this year’s finalists.
The 2017 panel spans the entire spectrum of market segments, and comprises eight of the Middle East construction sector’s foremost experts. This year’s judges include Cynthia Corby, partner – audit and assurance at Deloitte & Touche Middle East; Daniel Xu, partner – dispute resolution practice at King & Wood Mallesons; Jennifer Bradfield, member of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and project manager at Mace; Mark Graham, managing director of Macro; Rajesh Kumar Krishna, chairman and chief executive officer of Beaver Gulf; Robert Jackson, director for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS); and Sachin Kerur, head of the Middle East at Pinsent Masons.
The meeting, which was held at Construction Week towers on 20 November, saw the judges argue the case for their favourite nominations from this year’s 97-strong shortlist. In total, the Construction Week Awards 2017 will feature 14 award categories, which have been designed to recognise and reward corporate prowess, project success, individual excellence, and the sector’s most forward-thinking business initiatives.
A video detailing the meeting, and featuring the perspectives of this year’s judges, will be published on ConstructionWeekOnline in the lead-up to the grand finale. However, in order to find out which nominees have been selected to receive the Middle East construction industry’s most coveted trophies, you’ll just have to wait until the night itself.
