2016 Infinite Value Award Nominations Now Open to the Construction Global Community

 

The Australia Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS) has announced that nominations are now being accepted until 30 July 2016 for the fifth annual Infinite Value Awards.

 

With the support of its partners, the annual awards program discovers, rewards and promotes a variety of National and International professionals and projects.

 

Award winners will receive public recognition at the annual Infinite Value Awards Gala Dinner. The awards highlight how a collaborative approach can drive a successful project, build industry confidence and develop industry professionals. This is demonstrated by this years’ theme Partnerships in Construction.

 

AIQS chief executive officer Grant Warner said “Success in the built environment is achieved through collaboration between a number of construction partners, and this years’ Infinite Value Awards provides an ideal opportunity, not only for member firms, but other nominating companies and organisations to celebrate outstanding achievements across the broader construction industry.”

 

“This years’ awards recognises the contribution the broader construction industry and funding partners have made to the built environment.  Nominating firms are encouraged to bring their clients/nominees to the awards evening to celebrate all those successes. These awards recognise the people, the skills in design, engineering, sustainability, innovation, and community development, which have resulted in a built environment we can all be proud of.” Said Mr. Warner

 

Additionally, project-based winners will be awarded two trophies: the principal award to the person or project client and the secondary award to the nominating firm.

 

The Infinite Value Awards winners are announced and celebrated at the Infinite Value Awards Gala Dinner which will take place at the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Darling Harbour on Thursday 27 October 2016. Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, has recently undergone a $200 million re-development and provides an ideal location to showcase these awards with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the Darling Harbour precinct.

 

Some of last year’s winners include Lucy Eng, nominated by Beca Limited, winner of the Women in Construction & Professional of the Year awards; and the Port Arthur Penitentiary, nominated by Exsto Management (TAS), winner of the Project of the Year & Engineering Excellence Awards

 

To be eligible for the Infinite Value Awards, projects need to have been completed within the last two years. For a list of award categories, entry criteria and to download a nomination form, visit the Infinite Value Awards website www.infinitevalueawards.com
