New Zealand projects among winners at Centenary Awards in Barcelona
New Zealand has won two one-off Awards of Merit and a prestigious company award at the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) Centenary Awards held in Barcelona, Spain. FIDIC represents global consulting engineering interests in over 90 countries.
Two Auckland projects, the Britomart Transport Centre and Newmarket Viaduct Replacement Project, were among the 23 Awards of Merit announced. Over 97 projects from all over the world were entered and judged against a number of criteria including international recognition, technical excellence, innovation, how well they have endured, and their sustainability.
FIDIC awarded Trophies of Excellence for projects, and to a small number of individual firms, for having made a significant contribution over the past 100 years of engineering, with New Zealand’s Opus International Consultants being honoured as a winner.
ACENZ is a FIDIC member and represented New Zealand at the conference and awards ceremony and is proud to congratulate these New Zealand projects and contributing companies for their now world renowned success in engineering.
Both the Britomart Transport Centre and Newmarket Viaduct Replacement Project have previously won Gold Awards at the ACENZ INNOVATE Annual Awards of Excellence. Britomart Transport Centre was completed in 2003 and Newmarket Viaduct Replacement Project in 2012.
