The Shard wins the "Best Large Project" award at the Global Construction Summit in New York



The Shard in London won the "Best Large Project" award at the recent Global Construction Summit organized by Engineering News Record (ENR), a major New York-based publication. The ceremony took place in Manhattan Thursday, June 6.

This is the first year of the "Global Best Projects" awards. It acknowledges the best construction projects, worldwide.

A host of other constructions were honored in various categories. A panel of judges chose the buildings on the basis of various parameters, according to ENR.com.

The Shard building was chosen by the panel as a part of the "Best projects of the year" award. In this category, judges singled out two international projects that excelled in terms of design, innovation, construction quality, overcoming international building challenges and safety.
