The management of the leading indigenous cement solutions provider, Lafarge Africa Plc., has disclosed that the 5th International LafargeHolcim Awards will close on March 21, 2017 at 14:00 UTC.

In a statement, it said the USD 2 million competition seeks sustainable construction projects at an advanced stage of design from the fields of architecture, building and civil engineering; landscape and urban design; as well as materials, products and construction technologies.

The competition also features a Next Generation category for the visions and ideas of young professionals and students. It is open to authors up to 30 years of age.

Organized by the LafargeHolcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction, the world’s most significant competition in sustainable design takes place in parallel across five geographic regions. The independent juries are headed by Harry Gugger (Europe), Ray Cole (North America), Angelo Bucci (Latin America), Nagwa Sherif (Middle East Africa) and Donald Bates (Asia Pacific). Entries are evaluated using the “target issues” for sustainable construction – assessing submissions against environmental, social, and economic performance; in addition to recognizing the need for innovation and contextual impact. Participation in the Awards is free of charge.

Lafarge Africa therefore encourages more Nigerian players in the built environment and construction industry to enter for the competition. Also encouraged to enter are Nigerian students for the student category.
