Entries for the revised NZIOB Awards for Excellence, now known as the New Zealand Building Industry Awards, are open and close on Friday, 11 May 2018.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the awards programme, the NZIOB has introduced two new categories: a Consultants Award and an Interdisciplinary Collaboration Award, and renamed the event the New Zealand Building Industry Awards.
The new name and categories clearly identify that the awards programme is open to all the occupations involved in the New Zealand building industry, while broadening the awards appeal beyond primarily recognising project managers running commercial construction projects. What hasn’t changed is the awards focus on acknowledging and celebrating the building industry practitioners behind New Zealand’s most successful building projects.
Established in 1994, these awards are now open to anyone in the building industry and are judged by a panel of experts from the industry. Past Award winners have included many of the building industry’s high achievers, which reflects the Award’s stature, as does the fact that a number of past Young Achiever winners now hold very senior roles within the sector. The 2018 winners will likewise follow this trajectory.
The Award recipients will be announced at a Gala Dinner at the Cordis Hotel, formerly the Langham, in Auckland on Friday 24 August 2018.
Entry is not restricted to NZIOB members.
