Lafarge Africa Plc Launches 2023 Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction in Nigeria

Lafarge Africa Plc, a member of Holcim and a leading building solutions company in Sub-Saharan Africa, has launched the Holcim Awards for sustainable construction. The awards recognise and promote projects that combine sustainable designs and sustainable construction with architectural excellence. The competition is organised by the Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction, an independent non-profit organisation.

The company is inviting professionals in Nigeria’s built and construction sector to participate in the 2023 edition of the awards, which seek real-world projects that are client-supported and exemplify sustainable construction. Projects must not have started construction before January 1, 2022, and must be at the following stages: detailed design, complete design, under construction, and completed construction.

The Holcim Awards feature a total prize money of USD 1 million and is open for projects in architecture, building and civil engineering, landscape and urban design, materials, products, and construction technologies. The competition has two categories and is conducted in parallel as separate regional competitions across five regions: Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East Africa, and North America. Winners of Holcim Awards Gold, Silver, Bronze, and acknowledgement prizes in every region will share USD 200,000 per region.

Entries in the competition will be evaluated by independent expert juries who will nominate a shortlist of winners. Entries will be evaluated using the Holcim Foundation’s renewed goals for sustainable construction that serves as a framework to drive system change: uplifting places, a healthy planet, viable economics, and thriving communities. Winners from all regions will be invited to the prize announcement ceremony to be held at the 18th International Venice Biennale of Architecture: The Laboratory of the Future in November.

Lafarge Africa Plc encourages all eligible engineers, architects, builders, planners, construction firms, and project owners to participate in the competition to showcase how their projects are contributing to a more sustainable built environment. The competition is open for entries until March 30, 2023, at 14:00 hrs UTC. The initiative has grown to be the most significant competition for sustainable construction, recognising over 250 prize winners from 30,000 entries in 130 countries since its launch in 2004.
