As Poslovni Dnevnik/Darko Bicak writes, the Split Airport reconstruction and extension of the passenger terminal, the Castua Pentagon office building from Kastav and the New City Stairs from Ploce are the winners of this year’s Cemex Construction Award in the Republic of Croatia.

The three winners of the local pre-competition will represent Croatia’s construction achievements over the last three years at the global Cemex Architecture Award, which is to be held this November in Mexico.

After a one-year break due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 30th Cemex Building Award will be held this year, and the Croatian representatives will participate in it for the 12th time. The most successful Croatian architectural and construction achievements, such as the Split Airport reconstruction project, will compete in two main categories, the category of Infrastructure Buildings and the category of Public and Commercial Buildings.

While the Republic of Croatia has its representative in the competition for special awards, those for sustainable construction and special social value.

“The first impression that passengers get about any destination is its airport, and the new building of Split Airport is very transparent and designed in such a way that from every point of view, it is associated with flight. Every space that the passengers pass through offers them a new type of experience, a new moment that they can look at, photograph or comment on, with constant and uninterrupted contact with the local environment – with the sea, Trogir, Kastela, Split and in the background with Kozjak.

This introduces passengers in the best possible way to what awaits them when they arrive in the heart of Dalmatia,” said Ivan Vulic, one of the authors of the architectural solution of the passenger terminal of Split Airport.
