New Zealand Building Industry Awards 2019
Entries are open now, closing on 10 May
Awards Ceremony & Gala Dinner, 23 August 2019 (Cordis Hotel, Auckland)
The NZIOB’s Awards programme began in 1994 and over the years, categories such as the ‘Innovation Award’, ‘Young Achiever Award’, and ‘Safety Excellence Award’ have been introduced to provide a broader industry focus. In 2018, the New Zealand Building Industry Awards introduced a ‘Consultants Award’ category, and an ‘Interdisciplinary Collaboration Award’ category. The result is that the New Zealand Building Industry Awards now have a category that all high-performing building practitioners can enter.
For employers of finalists, being involved in the Awards presents an opportunity to showcase their company’s capability, and the talent that their culture and systems produces. Nothing says; “we are a high performing organisation” like having team members recognised by their peers at the NZIOB’s ‘Big Night’. For finalists, it is vindication of their abilities, and of the pride that their employer has in that ability.
The Awards are open to anyone in the building industry and entry is not restricted to NZIOB members.
Key dates for the 2019 Awards:
- 12 February – Entries open
- 10 May – Entries close
- 23 August – Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony (Cordis Hotel, Auckland)
