The highly anticipated Annual BCI Asia Awards ceremony took place at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila last Friday, June 16, 2023. During this prestigious event, the Philippines’ 10 most-active architecture firms and property developers were honoured with the esteemed BCI Top 10 Awards. It was a momentous occasion celebrating their exceptional contribution to the industry.
The portfolios of the top developers are valued at USD19.3 billion, while the portfolios of these elite architecture firms comprise USD16.5 billion worth of properties scheduled to start construction in Philippines this year. These firms were chosen based on the greatest aggregate value of projects under construction during the last full calendar year, weighted by the extent of their sustainability efforts. For architecture firms, pre-tender projects were included to recognise early incorporation of sustainable efforts.
