LEADERS IN CONSTRUCTION ANNOUNCED BY THE AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF BUILDING

LEADERS IN CONSTRUCTION ANNOUNCED BY THE AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF BUILDING

The Queensland Chapter of the Australian Institute of Building (AIB) last night (Friday 18 May 2018) announced the Professional Excellence in Building Awards for 2018.

At a sold out dinner presentation, guests heard how the judging panel was at times ‘immediately impressed’ with the quality of many of the submissions.

“This year we received some interesting projects with difficulties arising from very restricted access and material handling through to others that dealt with recycling and reuse of existing flout to achieve a strong result” said Jury Chair Leigh Smith.

“All the projects however displayed a high level of finished quality and attention to detail. The submissions showcased many high calibre team leaders and with help from their teams, achieved a high level of skill and competence in the execution of the building process, contractual and contractor management and most importantly, people management.

The variety of submissions also covered things such as an infrastructure project bridging over a wide and busy rail corridor and a remote project where the project team had to train and use indigenous labour” said Leigh.

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”

The judging criterion for the Awards weights the contribution of individuals and the challenges that they face. It is based on the complexity of the project in its construction phase as opposed to the characteristics of the completed structure.

The Australian Institute of Building went on to congratulate Eddie Gangemi,the 2018Qld Building Professional of the Year from Hutchinson Builders for his work on Newstead Central Stage 2 & 3.

Winners of Professional Excellence Awards from the night will now go on to the National Awards to be held in Canberra on Saturday, 7 September 2018.
