To determine the finalists, a panel of judges – consisting of leading professors, important international construction industry representatives and editors of specialized trade magazines – assessed the sustainability and the practical use of the innovations. The assessment criteria included the degree of innovation, user benefits and cost efficiency. Out of the 156 entrants, there are three finalists in each of the five categories. At the bauma press conference on January 29th and 30th 2013, in Munich, Germany, participating editors of international trade magazines met the nominees and assessed the shortlisted innovations. The winners will be determined from the overall assessment and will be announced at an awards ceremony in Munich on April 14th, 2013.
