The NZ Institute of Building is calling for nominations for its 2024 NZ Building People Awards and Next Gen Awards.

The awards celebrate and recognise people at all stages, places and scales doing great things in the construction industry.

The awards are about the people behind the projects, and reward the good sorts in the building industry, those leading by example, and setting the behaviour standards high.

The NZ Building People Awards are open to anyone in New Zealand’s building industry. The awards categories span a range of topics and levels of experience — from emerging leaders in the early stages of their careers to those excelling in the specialties and leading large-scale projects.

The awards have run for 30 years and have shifted to reflect the industry and its people. Last year the judging criteria were adjusted to give a more holistic view of the nominees’ strengths, in addition to project delivery.

Along with technical fundamentals, judging criteria now include, among other things, the nominee’s role and experience in championing diversity, promoting health and well-being, collaboration, and their focus on the future.

The Next Gen Awards are open to all the Institute’s Next Gen members — those in training in the construction industry, including students, cadets and apprentices.

Applicants are required to make a short video explaining their “big idea” to shake up the country’s building industry.

2023 National Winner Anni Zhou’s submission focused on improving collaboration in the building industry through multi-dimensional Building Information Modelling (BIM).

The Next Gen Awards offers those in training the opportunity to attend the awards evening and connect with industry players, plus the chance to win up to $4000.

Find out more and nominate yourself or someone else at nziob.org.nz/awards.

Key dates: 
• April 17: Nominations opened
• May 29: Nominations close 
• August 30: Awards evening at the Viaduct Events Centre, Auckland.
