The Cement and Concrete Association of New Zealand (CCANZ) has announced the 2011 Concrete3 Sustainability Awards are open for entry. The awards offer those involved in building New Zealand's future a chance to have their achievements recognised and to draw inspiration from others. Entries remain open until 26 June 2011 and the winner will be announced in August 2011.
The Awards are sponsored by CCANZ and are open to anyone in the construction industry, including architects, designers, engineers, contractors, and clients. There are five categories from which a supreme winner will be selected: Excellence in Residential Concrete Construction, Excellence in Commercial Concrete Construction, Excellence in Civil Concrete Construction, Excellence in Concrete Innovation, and Excellence in Concrete for the Community.
CCANZ chief executive Rob Gaimster said it was important to promote the industry's success and innovation in sustainability. 'The Concrete3 Sustainability Awards are a chance to recognise those who are leading the way in embracing sustainable practices and for the industry, as a whole, to share knowledge and experience, and ensure it continues to operate in the most responsible manner possible,' says Gaimster.
