Sustainable development recognised


The Cement and Concrete Association of New Zealand’s (CCANZ) 2013 Concrete3 Sustainability Awards will again recognise and celebrate the industry’s contribution to sustainable development.

Now in its sixth year, the awards are open to anyone, from architects, designers and engineers to contractors, builders and clients. CCANZ chief executive Rob Gaimster says the Awards acknowledge those within the construction industry who have adopted sustainability as a core business strategy.

“These awards give entrants the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with their peers, while at the same time highlighting their achievements,” Mr Gaimster says.
The Awards encourage responsible design, build and operating practices across environmental, economic and social considerations.

There will be 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.

The winner will be announced at a presentation at the 2013 New Zealand Concrete Industry Conference in Queenstown on October 4.
