Engineering News Record (ENR) recently selected the Gilbane Alberici joint venture as a Merit Award winner in the Manufacturing category for their work on Constellation Brands’ Phase 2 Piedras Negras Brewery Expansion as part of the 2017 Global Best Projects Awards.
Constellation Brands chose the Gilbane Alberici joint venture to serve as both the construction manager and general contractor for the expansion on their Piedras Negras, Mexico facility. This $1 billion project, which more than doubled brewery capacity, included brewery and packaging buildings, warehouses, and water-wastewater and cogeneration plant expansions.
This is the fifth annual Global Best Projects recognition by ENR, which was established to honor construction and design excellence during the past year from around the globe. The award recognition focuses on responding to the challenges, risks and rewards of designing and constructing in foreign countries.
Winners were chosen by an independent jury of industry professionals with extensive global experience. Criteria included safety, innovation, contribution to the global community, aesthetic quality, and workmanship, with special emphasis on the global diversity of the project team.
Global Best Projects award winners were recognized at the ENR 2017 Global Construction Summit, held October 23, 2017, in New York City.
