Entries open for the 2020 New Zealand Building Industry Awards
Entries for the 2020 New Zealand Institute of Building (NZIOB) Awards are now open. Now in their 27th year, the awards acknowledge and celebrate the practitioners behind New Zealand’s most successful building projects.
NZIOB chief executive Malcolm Fleming says: “The NZIOB Awards are open to those who participate in the design and delivery of New Zealand’s built environment, with specific categories targeting those running construction sites, safety (through both the design process and onsite), consultants (including architects, engineers, quantity surveyors or project managers), interdisciplinary collaboration (project teams), and young achievers (under 30s).
“Unlike other industry awards, the NZIOB Awards reach across professional boundaries and provide entrants with recognition from ‘industry’ as opposed to acknowledgement from ‘professional peers’ only.”
The awards have eleven categories and a supreme award. Six categories, defined by the scale and cost of the project, can be entered by individuals or teams working on construction projects. The other five categories recognise innovation, safety excellence, high-performance consultants who have contributed to a successful project, collaborative partnerships and young achievers.
Entries close on Friday 8 May 2020. The award recipients will be announced at a Gala Dinner at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland on Friday 21 August 2020.
Malcolm Fleming says: “Past award winners have included many of the building industry’s high achievers, which reflects the awards’ stature, as does the fact that many past young achiever winners now hold very senior roles within the sector. This year’s winners will likewise follow this trajectory.”
Full information about the awards and details for how to enter can be found on the NZIOB website.
