Entries for the 2022 New Zealand Building Industry Awards are now being sought.
For main contractors, the traditional cost-band categories are open to those who have run a construction project with distinction, with eligible projects being those that have been completed in the period from November 1, 2020 to May 31, 2022.
Other categories include:
• Interdisciplinary Collaboration (for builder/consultants/client project teams),
• Innovation (for new products or processes that change the way we build), and
• Young Achiever (for those under 30 years of age).
For non-builders, the Consultants category provides for high performing architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and project managers.
“What sets the New Zealand Building Industry Awards apart is that the full range of construction practitioners have a category in which they are likely to be eligible to enter,” NZIOB chief executive Malcolm Fleming says.
“This sees a good cross-section of design consultants, project managers, builders, and subcontractors being recognised, either individually or as part of a project team, in front of the full construction industry, rather than in front of professional peers only.
“The challenges brought about by Covid-19 in the past two years has brought the construction industry together,” Fleming says.
“The sense of unity that was expressed throughout the 2020 and 2021 lockdowns was a feature that helped the majority of companies engaged in construction emerge from the pandemic well placed.
“That sense of a strong construction community has stuck, and is why forums that involve the full construction supply chain, like the New Zealand Building Industry Awards, resonate so strongly — the industry loves to come together.”
The deadline for entries into the 2022 awards is May 6, 2022. The Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner is scheduled for Friday, September 2 at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland.
