Autodesk Announces Winners of 2020 AEC Excellence Awards

Autodesk AEC Excellence Awards winners for 2020 showcase diverse excellence across infrastructure, building design, and construction sectors.


Autodesk has announced its winners of its 2020 AEC Excellence Awards. In a year defined by the unique challenges brought upon the world from a global pandemic, these innovative teams are reimagining what is possible.

From a field of more than 260 entries spanning 35 countries, these projects stood out to our independent panel of judges as exemplars of the AEC industry’s ability to respond to adversity with resilience and initiative. They are stories of challenges, solutions, and insight. 

Autodesk also announced its Innovator of the Year award, which honors AEC practitioners reimagining the design and construction practice using technology. The award this year goes to Wajdi Mereb, who leads digital transformation at Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (Dubai RTA), using BIM to plan and design massive projects including a 15-km-long extension of the Dubai Metro to the Expo 2020 site.

The AEC Excellence Awards are co-sponsored by Informed Infrastructure and Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS).
