CONSTRUCTION
TECHNOLOGY AWARDS

24 February, 2021 | Dubai, UAE

About

The Construction Technology Awards by CTF celebrate new approaches and best-in-class use of technology within the built environment. They look for outstanding examples of technology implementation, transformation and leadership that have helped design, build or operate projects better – be that through improved design, efficiency, cost reduction, sustainability, or improved workplace safety. Technology is changing the way construction companies work and how projects are delivered. As stakeholders increasingly seek to get more from their existing assets, it is changing the way projects are handed over and operated with more focus on the complete life cycle of assets. Construction 4.0 is fast upon us and these awards pay homage to those forward-thinking companies, startups and individuals that have embraced change and are now reaping the benefits.
