Zutari Impact Awards

The Zutari Impact awards are designed to recognise and celebrate how our exemplary projects and people, who apply their sought-after expertise, are making a real difference in people’s lives.

The impact we make in communities, environments and industries through our projects is the reason for our eminence amongst our clients and competitors alike.

Our Impact Awards is a joyful, celebration of the many and varied projects that have shaped enduring impact across Africa, the Middle East, and beyond.

Projects that get things done, and make things work, remain the only vehicle through which good intentions can be translated into tangible impact. As a full-lifecycle infrastructure engineering and advisory practice, Zutari is uniquely placed to shape such projects. These projects are a testimony to the power of radical collaboration and human-centred design. They have enabled more responsible production and have stretched the boundaries of engineering to create adaptable infrastructure and resilient spaces.These projects best represent Zutari’s passion for maximising the impact of infrastructure to support lives and livelihoods – accelerating equitable quality of life for communities and economies while touching the earth lightly.

Winning projects are identified annually in several categories.  In each category, winning projects are those that exhibit exceptional technical mastery, innovative digital solutions, creative intelligence, safety, collaboration and adherence to Zutari’s cultural codes.  These codes emphasize leadership, responsibility, integrity, grit, trust and teamwork.
