February 12, 2019
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. ("CEMEX") (NYSE: CX), launched the company’s call for the 2019 CEMEX Building Award.
The CEMEX Building Award recognizes the best buildings in Mexico and the world, as well as the professionals who make them possible. Since its creation in 1991, the award has become a benchmark in the construction industry, recognizing projects that stand out for their design, innovation, and promotion of environmental preservation, while offering better solutions for their users and communities.
The registration process for both the Mexico Edition and the International Edition of the CEMEX Building Award is completed online at www.premioobrascemex.com. Registrants can consult the elements and requirements at the same address.
Each edition of the award is divided into five main categories: Residential Housing, Affordable Housing, Building, Collective Space, and Infrastructure. In addition, it has four special recognitions: Universal Accessibility, Sustainable Building, Construction Innovation and Social Value.
The call is open to projects completed in 2018, and the deadline to participate is May 3, 2019. The finalists from each category will be announced in July, and winners will be presented their awards at a ceremony in November in Mexico City.
Under the slogan "Ideas that build life,” the CEMEX Building Award recognizes those works that start as mere ideas and end up as construction projects that provide value to those who interact with them. The contest seeks to encourage creativity and the development of better construction practices, while underscoring innovations that will become the new construction standards of tomorrow.
