2020 Engineering Excellence Awards Gala Dinner

Thursday, 5th November 2020
Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley

The highly anticipated Engineering Excellence Awards aspire to endorse and recognise excellence of Local Government and Public Works Projects. This is achieved through inspiration, innovation, collaboration, development and completion of projects and technical management by our Members.

As part of the annual State Conference, all Councils throughout NSW are encouraged to nominate projects and programs irrespective of size and share best practice with peers in the industry.

Besides from putting forward programs and projects, the Engineering Excellence Awards are the perfect opportunity to nominate and recognise inspirational, hardworking and passionate individuals in your organisation.

Some benefits of submitting a nomination include:

  • Award Winners will be considered for the National Excellence Awards presented at the IPWEA National Conference 2021 in Adelaide
  • Recognition for your organisation and the Project Team
  • Inclusion in the Engineering Excellence Awards Booklet on the IPWEA NSW website
  • Receipt of an Award trophy that can be displayed
  • Recognition of your value to your organisation in being part of the Engineering Excellence Awards Gala Event
  • The opportunity to present a paper on your project at the IPWEA NSW State Conference 2020

Each project nominated for an award showcases the individual as well as the team ambitions to improve the local communities in which we reside.

This is your best opportunity to put your team in the spotlight and receive the recognition you greatly deserve through the Engineering Excellence Awards.

If you have an outstanding Public Works project or an enthusiastic colleague that you would like to put in the spotlight, please submit your Excellence Awards nomination via the button below.
