NZ’s top infrastructure awards up for grabs

Entries are open for the annual Civil Contractors New Zealand Hirepool Construction Excellence Awards

The awards have been presented for outstanding contributions to New Zealand’s civil construction industry since 1978.

CCNZ chief executive Peter Silcock says, "The civil construction industry has a lot to celebrate, but sometimes we get too caught up in day-to-day work to do so. With so much outstanding work being done across our country and so many great stories just waiting to be told, there’s a lot we can learn from each other."

As the 2020 awards were cancelled due to COVID-19, the 2021 awards will feature two years of projects. To enter, projects must be completed by the closing date of May 2021. In addition, a new category for projects up to $2m has also been added to allow more smaller businesses to enter the awards, which feature five project categories and one maintenance category.


The 2020–21 awards will be presented at the Hirepool Construction Excellence Awards Dinner, which will be held on Friday, 30 July 2021 at Te Papa Tongarewa—the Museum of New Zealand in Wellington as part of The Contractors Conference, which is the national conference for civil construction in New Zealand.

Entries for the 2020–21 CCNZ Hirepool Construction Excellence Awards can be made online at until 30 May 2021 (direct link:
