IPWEA NZ Excellence Awards

The IPWEA NZ Excellence Awards provide an opportunity for public works practitioners to showcase the great work they do. In New Zealand public works projects are delivered by a range of parties including local government, central government, consultants, contractors and suppliers, so the successful delivery of projects is usually a team effort. Consequently our awards are presented to all organisations represented in the winning teams.
