ALEC walked away with top honours at the Construction Week Awards 2018, held at Dubai’s JW Marriott Marquis hotel in Business Bay on 4 December. The UAE construction giant was named Contractor of the Year during the ceremony.

Led by industry veteran Kez Taylor, ALEC was honoured for its achievements over the last 12 months as well as its project portfolio that includes high-profile schemes such as Expo 2020 Dubai and Deira Waterfront.

Fellow UAE construction heavyweight ASGC was the Highly Commended Contractor of the Year at Construction Week Awards 2018. The firm, which won top honours at last year’s ceremony, was recognised by the jury for its proven track record of delivering complex projects.

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.

Construction Week Awards 2018 were supported by Gold Sponsors ALEC, ASGC, Arabtec, and Al Naboodah; Silver Sponsors Future Metro, Unimix, and WME Consultants; Category Sponsors Construction Computer Software, Acrow, JLG, and Ramboll; returning Social Media Partner, WSP; Content Partner UGC Factory; and Post-Event Celebration Sponsor, Bam International.
