Entries open for new commercial building awards


New Zealand’s newest commercial building awards — The New Zealand Commercial Project Awards — are underway, with entries open and sector interest growing.
Recognising the best of New Zealand’s commercial buildings and the teams behind them, the awards are open to all commercial contractors and their construction partners, including architects, engineers and property owners and developers.

Awards spokesperson Greg Pritchard says receipt of a number of quality entries within days of the awards entries opening indicates the programme will be well received by the industry.
“We’re confident the wider industry will see these awards as a great opportunity to showcase the commercial work being done and the team behind them. We believe the properties competing for recognition will be the best New Zealand has to offer.”

Entries can be made online at www.commercialprojectawards.co.nz before Friday, October 26, 2012. Buildings completed after February 28, 2010, and with a certificate of practical completion by October 26, 2012 are eligible to enter.

Sponsored by PlaceMakers, James Hardie, NALCO, GIB and Allied Concrete, the awards will be announced at a gala event in Auckland in May next year.
