LEADERS IN CONSTRUCTION ANNOUNCED BY THE AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF BUILDING

The Victorian and Tasmanian Chapters of the Australian Institute of Building (AIB) last night (Friday 20 July) announced the Professional Excellence in Building Awards for 2018.

This year, guests heard how the judging panel was impressed with the quality of submissions overall.

Jury Chair, Dino Krommydas said “This year’s nominees have once again demonstrated that we are part of a vitally important industry that is delivering homes, workplaces and facilities to an exceptional standard, whilst working in a most complex and challenging environment”

The judging panel was consistently impressed with the quality of entries which resulted from construction projects delivered by professionals that have utilised planning, innovation and construction management skills that are nothing short of world class. The evening showcased some of the best Victorian builders and their project and construction managers. Projects ranged from small retail fit-outs to restaurants, hospitals, schools, childcare centres, universities, apartments and multi million dollar high-rise buildings, all completed with various constraints and complexities and all providing benefits and improvements to the built environment.

“The construction professionals of our industry should be proud of their achievements at this year’s Awards and all award recipients as well as their teams are to be applauded for their skill, diligence and innovation in delivering their products to the greater community” said Dino.

The AIB Awards are acknowledged through peer recognition. It’s about how it was built, not what was built.

AIB National President, Paul Heather said “The Awards recognise the contribution and leadership shown by individuals to the successful completion of a construction project, reinforcing that the success of any building firm can be attributed to those responsible for construction projects”

Recipients of Professional Excellence Awards will go forward to the National Awards to be held on Saturday, 7 September, 2018 at the National Arboretum in Canberra.
