BL Harbert International has been ranked first and second in Engineering News-Record’s 2019 Global Best Projects Winners in the Government Category.
BL Harbert took home the top spot for the new U.S. Embassy Compound, located in Harare, Zimbabwe. The company received an award of merit for the new U.S. Consulate Compound, located in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
The annual list, now in its 7th year, identifies and honors the project teams behind outstanding design and construction efforts of the past year. But this competition stands apart with the distinct rule that at least one firm involved in the project must be working outside of its home country. Construction had to be completed between January 2018 and April 2019.
With a record number of entries to contend with, the judges picked the largest and most diverse field of winners to date, with 32 projects located in 20 different countries around the globe. “These outstanding examples show the risks, rewards and hurdles overcome when designing and building internationally,” said Scott Blair of ENR.
BL Harbert and the other project winners will be spotlighted in more detail in the Sept. 30 issue of ENR.
