Civil Contractors New Zealand operates awards programmes to recognise excellence in construction, training programmes and people.
The national Hirepool Construction Excellence Awards, Connexis Company Awards and Z People Awards are hosted at the annual conference each year, while regional branches often host their own awards programmes to recognise excellence in their local regions.
This year’s Hirepool Construction Excellence Awards closed 5 June, while the Connexis Company Traning Awards and Z People Awards close 23 June.
