A decade of successes

POLAND Over the last ten years, the Eurobuild Awards has been highlighting and honouring the outstanding companies on the market – those that have had the greatest impact, provided the highest standard of services and generated the strongest business results. Added to this, Eurobuild has paid tribute to the best development projects in terms of their competitiveness and value as an investment product. The Eurobuild Awards does this by closely monitoring the market so that it can reward the highest standards achieved in the real estate and construction sectors. The companies and projects that are nominated, as well as those that walk away with the awards, act as inspirations and role models for others in their wake.
