The Global Galvanizing Awards recognise the innovative use of galvanized steel by architects, engineers and steel constructors. These awards have been held in conjunction with the industry’s global forum – Intergalva 2018.
Projects were evaluated for their effective and innovative use of galvanizing in architecture and civil engineering, as well as the functionality and aesthetics of the structure. Special attention was also given to demonstration of the contribution of galvanizing to sustainable construction. The entrant’s approach towards galvanizing and its incorporation in the design stages was also considered important.
36 projects were entered through the national and regional galvanizers associations across the world. In addition to the 'Judges' Award' and 'Industry Award' Winner, the judges have identified two Highly Commended and the highest placed projects from each participating association have been Shortlisted.
The Awards are organised through the international network of galvanizing industry associations and were sponsored by the International Zinc Association.
