With a new year comes a new round of project completions, or at least project milestones. From airports to office buildings, the focus in 2021 will encompass a wide variety of construction undertakings as contractors fight to overcome the economic uncertainties brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

While many large American projects are on the radar, some contractors that work in the U.S. also have major jobs underway in other countries. Here are a few international projects that the Construction Dive staff will be closely watching:
