Popularly known as the Oscars of the construction industry, the CONSTRUCTION WORLD GLOBAL AWARDS is a calendar event for the movers and shakers of the industry. The event is the culmination of a meticulous process that ranks India’s fastest growing construction companies, construction equipment manufacturing companies and construction material manufacturing companies across several criteria. Over the years, the event has acted as a catalyst for growth and success by giving stellar players their due in the spotlight, identifying potential powerhouses, and inspiring the entire industry to raise its benchmarks in terms of performance and quality.


At this event, the crème de la crème of the construction fraternity comes together to witness the felicitation of the top companies. This includes 500 top business owners, chairmen, MDs, CEOs, directors and marketing heads. The 21 st edition of the CONSTRUCTION WORLD GLOBAL AWARDS is scheduled on 12 th October 2023 in Delhi.

ENR Recognition ceremony

ENR has a particular prominence in the coverage of global construction because it conducts original research to rank the Top 225 International Design Firms and the Top 250 International Contractors. Even privately held firms report their revenue specifically to appear in these rankings, which are widely used by owners planning construction projects as an objective source of data about companies around the world.


The rankings have been published for almost 42 years, appearing first in December of 1979. Firms fill out a survey form to participate in the rankings. ENR requires a CEO or CFO to sign the survey form certifying that the information is truthful. ENR staff members analyze the data and write the story that accompanies the charts and tables.
