ABOUT THE AWARDS

The NZIOB Awards for Excellence are the premier New Zealand Building Industry Awards that acknowledge and celebrate the people behind the projects.

The Awards are unique as they are the only New Zealand Building Industry Awards that celebrate and recognise an individuals’ professional excellence in the building and construction process, as opposed to recognising and awarding the project or completed structure.

The Awards are presented at an annual ceremony and dinner being held on Friday 25 August at the Pullman Auckland. This is also a great place to network with the best in the industry in a social environment.

The NZIOB Awards for Excellence are open to anyone in the industry and entries are judges by a panel of industry peers.

WHY ENTER THE AWARDS

The NZIOB Awards for Excellence provide an opportunity and platform to showcase yourself, your work ethics, company and project to the Building and Construction Industry throughout New Zealand and Australia and to proudly be recognised for excellence among their peers.

The Awards ceremony is also a great place to network and rub shoulders with the best in the industry in a social environment.

The nominee must demonstrate his/her individual excellence in the nominated project’s construction process including management methods, organisational skills and innovative techniques used to overcome difficulties during the building and construction process.

The judging is done in two stages over a two month period by a judging panel made up of experienced people from a cross section of the New Zealand Construction Industry.

 

In total over 40 judges throughout New Zealand are involved in the process and the Institute is extremely grateful for the enormous amount of time and personal effort they bestow on the annual Awards for Excellence.

"It is great to see each year the high calibre of entrants and the quality buildings they have produced throughout the country. These awards are the only industry awards that commend and reward individuals or teams for excellence in the construction related industry thereby giving companies the opportunity to provide recognition to those people who have excelled on projects".
