The awards are an integral part of the Year in Infrastructure Conference, which brings together infrastructure professionals and members of the media from around the globe to share innovative practices in infrastructure project design, engineering, construction, and operations. The awards, which are judged by independent juries of industry experts, recognise infrastructure projects for digital innovations that improve project delivery and/or asset performance.
