In this edition, Lisbon bagged the best projects in the Residential area while Porto won rehabilitation awards in the Social, Commercial & Services and Structural.
Alcobaça won the award in the Tourism category, while Loulé won the award for the best rehabilitation project under 1000m2.
To these categories awards were handed out for the best projects within the context of Lisbon and Porto.
There were several new aspects for the awards in 2023: PURA have introduced a new award for Masters of Construction; professional who stand out in their specific areas.
In each edition the candidates will be architects, developers, construction companies and professionals whose career and dedication to their ‘art’ deserve recognition.
