– The competition has a rich tradition and has been held for 17 years. And it is important. We need to popularize our industry. We have many achievements, ranging from objects that an ordinary person perceives only visually. And we understand that this is the work of many teams: design bureaus, manufacturers of construction materials, construction and installation organizations. And also these are technologies, these are solutions of design institutes. There is a large group of people who are aimed at achieving the goal of constructing an object. And in each of these areas there are people who have achieved certain results and can share their successful, effective experience. The competition gives such a chance to these specialists who are not visible, but who stand behind any object. And we can see and evaluate what they did.

The competition also allows one not to stagnate in the profession. There is always a benchmark to look up to. And after that we tighten up the norms somewhere, somewhere inside organizations are rebuilt, somewhere an impetus is given for the development of a new construction movement. Any competition is a movement forward, which determines the strategy, development of the industry.

Eduard Batyanovsky, Chairman of the expert council of the competition, Head of the department "Construction materials and construction technology" BNTU, Doctor of Technical Science, Professor noted:

 – The competition "The best construction product of the year" is constantly developing. Experts have launched a very serious work to evaluate the technical characteristics of materials, works, construction objects that are submitted to the competition. A careful selection is underway, the best are identified in different directions.

In 2020, new nominations were included and now we can say that almost all areas of the construction industry have been reflected in our country.

We want to convey to everyone that if products that are not on the market of the Republic of Belarus are put up for the competition, the task of the participants is to present and prove its advantages. The second task is to present new products from enterprises that have already passed tests and entered the consumer market.

It is gratifying that the competition also retains continuity: there are already traditional participants who are constantly striving to do something better than in previous years and show it at the competition. You will definitely see these winners at any construction exhibition.

At the 17th awards ceremony, the next results were summed up - the end of a large many months of work on the selection and expert evaluation of construction products variety (materials, technologies, equipment, machinery, etc.).

Nowadays, getting its recognition means getting the recognition of experts and consumers of those materials, production solutions, developments in various directions that are offered on the modern construction market.
