Philippines’ Zuellig Building has been selected as the winner by Engineering News-Record (ENR), a premier U.S. industry publication, for the Green Project category of its 2013 Global Best Projects competition.
Zuellig building, located at the crossroads of Paseo de Roxas and Makati Avenue, was among the 66 projects that competed for getting recognition in one of the 20 different categories, from airports, office buildings, healthcare centers, bridges, highways and roads.
ENR, a weekly magazine with an international audience of architects, engineers, projects owners, contractors, industry suppliers and government regulators, holds Global Best Projects competition every year to honor the design excellence and construction across the globe.
In this year’s competition, 21 winning projects included 11 Best Projects and 10 Awards of Merit. The Best office Award went to China’s Central Television Headquarters in Beijing. BC Place Revitalization in Vancouver was selected for the Best Sports/Entertainment category award. The Shard in London snapped up Best Retail/Mixed-Use Development category award while New York’s National September 11th Memorial won the Award of Merit in the Cultural category.
A seven-member independent jury of veteran industry professionals chose the project winners considering several factors such as innovation, safety, artistic quality, contributions to global community and the global diversity of the project team.
Zuellig Building, constructed by WV Coscolluela and Associates (WVCA) with the collaboration of world-class architects, engineers, and project consultants, is the first high-rise building project in the Philippines that was pre-certified by the US Green Building Council at the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold level.
Thanks to its superb-location, world-class design and distinctive frontage, the building is on course to become the premier business location in Metro Manila.
Zuellig Building was selected as one of the top three buildings in the “Best Office and Business Development” category of MIPIM Asia Awards 2012.
