The portfolios of the top developers are valued at US$4.5 billion, and that of the elite architecture firms at $6.1 billion worth of properties scheduled for construction in Vietnam this year.
The firms were chosen based on the greatest aggregate value of projects under construction during the last full calendar year, weighted by the extent of their sustainability efforts.
For architecture firms, pre-tender projects were included to recognize early incorporation of sustainable efforts.

The theme explored the rapid changes in societal compositions throughout Asia, and asked entrants to envision sustainable design solutions for future generations amid ongoing climate and planetary challenges.
The BCI Interior Design Awards 2023 had the theme of Human-Centered Interiors and went to projects that showcase well-designed spaces that empower users to reside, engage and enrich their lives joyfully and meaningfully. The award-winning designs illustrate a deep understanding of users’ psyche, behaviors, habits, and preferences.

Celebrating 18 years of building and design leadership, the BCI Asia Awards remain one of the most coveted in the regional building industry while serving as a forum for domestic and international networking among elite architecture firms, property developers, manufacturers, and service providers.
BCI bridges the information gap between design consultants seeking to identify products for their projects and suppliers seeking to inform them about building products and new construction technologies.
In doing so, BCI Central conducts more than 250,000 face-to-face and phone interviews with architects, developers, engineers, and contractors every year, reporting on approximately USD400 billion worth of projects.
Besides promoting efficiency and transparency through its research services, BCI also publishes the award-winning FuturArc journal, Construction+ magazine and other architectural books.
