Room full of decision making power


CW Architect and Builder Awards were instituted by ASAPP Media Information Group in to celebrate and honor the talent, vision, and commitment or architects and builders for their consistent and significant contributions to the construction fraternity.

It's India's most coveted awards for the architecture and building industry. The awards recognize the people and organizations responsible for the changing landscape of our country and present awards to the Top Architects and the Top builders of India. The award event over the years has personified the phenomenal growth of the industry by adding scale and opulence each year.

This year the awards enter the 10th year and the event is going to take epic proportions. Theme this year is the "Decade of Excellence" and we will celebrate the journey of excellence by felicitating all the winners from past 9 years with the 10 CWAB Award of Excellence Trophy.

The winners will do a Red Carpet walk after felicitation. CWAB - Wall of theme will be unveiled and signed by all the winners after the Red Carpet Walk.

To commemorate the Wall of fame, a special book will be created with the pictures of the wall, profiles of all the 10 CWAB award of excellence winners and the pictures from the day of the event. This book will be widely distributed among the industry and will be donated to libraries of architectural and engineering colleges.

All the jury members from the past years will also be felicitated.

Decade of Excellence

CWAB Awards for the past 9 years has a theme based criteria - they have ranged from Green, to Youth, to INNO-VISION and many more. The theme of 10th year gala event is "DECADE OF EXCELLENCE" - that symbolizes outstanding achievement and excellence for the decade.

Under the theme "Decade of Excellence", we will felicitate all the Architects and Builders who have been enduring achievers of CWAB for the past nine years.

The industry is riding a growth curve-there's no doubt about it. Numerous news reports on various projects underway in Indian cities across the country are testimony to the

sustained growth path we have embarked upon. Many more projects that explore new paradigms in design and pay increasing heed to environmental concerns are on the anvil. Indeed, the future looks exciting. However, as we look ahead with optimism, we cannot forget the masterminds that have shaped the India we are living in: the builders who have built our structural icons, and the architects who have designed them.

This thought was the inspiration behind the CW ARCHITECT & BUILDER AWARDS that were instituted ten years ago. And the journey has been a memorable one.

My heart felt congratulations to all of you for making the 9th edition of Construction World Architect & Builder (CWAB) Awards held on August 22, 2014 at Hotel Four Seasons in Mumbai a grand success. This is the most prestigious and mega award event for the Indian construction industry. I highly acknowledge and appreciate your expertise management in making the show truly remarkable and fabulous.

Mala singh, Managing Director, PEC Greening India Group

Kindly allow me to congratulate you for successfully taking the CW Architect and Builder Awards event to great heights! With high energy levels, the whole show was professionally well managed. Devika Devaiah’s (author of Orbit Shifting Innovation) vibrant speech on innovation was an icing on the cake!
A few years back, we, at India Chapter of American Concrete Institute, organised a similar yearly event for best structures in different categories. That said, you could consider having an award for indigenous innovation in the field of construction.

Chetan R Raikar, Structwel Designers & Consultants Pvt Ltd

I attended the 9th CW Architect & Builder Awards and was highly impressed. It is such a rarity to see so many of India's top architects and builders get together at one platform. Kudos to your team for having put up an event par excellence.

A Rao, Architect

I was delighted to have witnessed the 9th CWAB AWARDS in August 2014 in Mumbai.The event was marked by high level of participation from the industry, at both, institutional and individual, levels. Such events create a positive impact on the professionals in particular and the society at large, in general. The event was organised and conducted very methodically and professionally, for which I extend my hearty felicitations to Shri Pratap Padode and his dedicated team.

Sudhir Krishna

The CWAB awards is indeed an innovative front runner, designed to bring the industry together. It creates an opportunity for celebration and recognition, but more importantly it also creates a platform for future leaders to direct the course of the industry. Having seen how awards are designed and conducted up close, I am happy to say the CWAB awards is a robustly designed and implemented process- a great achievement, indeed. My congratulations to ASAPP media and Falguni and Pratap Padode on the successful occasion of the 10th CWAB awards. I do hope it grows from strength to strength and it becomes a reference point for other industries too.
