Earlier this month, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) announced the winners of its 2019 awards program. The winning projects represent the best tall buildings, urban contributions, technologies, and innovations emerging around the world. The 181 Fremont Tower in San Francisco received awards in five categories.
The mixed-use tower achieved awards in Best Tall Building 200-299 meters, Structural Engineering, MEP Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, and Fire & Risk Engineering categories.
“This year’s awards of excellence winners communicate the diversity of interdisciplinary thought and innovation that will characterize both current and future generations of urban development around the world,” said Karl Fender, chair of the Best Tall Building jury. “These recognitions, bestowed by the world’s premier authority on tall buildings, showcase these projects to a global audience and help drive a meaningful conversation about the quality of our urban environments.”
The winners will move on to the next stage of the awards program, sending the owner/developers and design teams of the projects to the CTBUH 2019 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference, where they will compete in front of an international audience and live juries for ‘Best in Category’ distinctions.
