At the World Architecture Festival, which took place in Amsterdam from 04 to 06 December 2019, the new terminal building of the Mactan Cebu International Aiport received the World Architecture Award 2019 in the category "Completed Building Transport".
The jury judged the planning by Integrated Design Associates (IDA), Hong Kong:
"This is a simple and elegant new airport that uses many locally sourced materials. It is intergrated into the local area through the development of a local hub and a landscape plan.

We are pleased to have made a significant contribution to this architecture with the wide-span, visible barrel roof construction made of glulam.
