2nd Competition
Global Holcim Awards 2009

Global Holcim Awards winners 2009

The second cycle of the Holcim Awards competition has reached its pinnacle: the top sustainable construction projects out of thousands of submissions from all continents have been selected.

The four winning entries are a river remediation scheme in Morocco, a greenfield university campus in Vietnam, a rural planning strategy in China, and a shelter for day laborers in the USA.

A series of prize-handovers were held at the site of each project to celebrate the winners and their highly-acclaimed examples of sustainable construction.
