Entries Open for the 2022 New Zealand Commercial Project Awards

These prestigious awards recognise the outstanding commercial construction and commercial construction teams that are shaping New Zealand’s landscape and providing the environments where we live, work, and play. 

These Awards are Different  

Celebrating 10 years in 2022, this is the only awards programme that celebrates the team. The collaboration, innovation and craftmanship of the whole project team, everyone from the building owners, architects, engineers, and quantity surveyors through to the construction companies themselves, who work together to make these projects – big and small – come to life.  Great buildings do not happen without great teams.

The New Zealand Commercial Project Awards have something for every project team.  The size of the project, team, and the contract value does not matter.  The awards are based on the collaboration of the project team, innovation, quality and how you overcome the challenges of the project together. It is not about the size of the project or budget.

Hear from architects Warren and Mahoney and contractors LT McGuiness about why they enter the awards and the benefits to their business.

Who Can Enter?
The awards are an all-of-industry event and are open to all New Zealand based commercial construction project partners including contractors, architects, building owners, engineers, and quantity surveyors etc.  You do not need to be a member of Registered Master Builders to enter.
