2019 Awards for Excellence in Concrete


The Concrete Institute of Australia is pleased to announce that 59 entries have been submitted for the 2019 Awards for Excellence in Concrete program. 
Established in 1971, the Awards for Excellence in Concrete recognise and publicise the many significant contributions to excellence in concrete design, construction and materials in Australia.
Concrete related projects, technologies and innovations are all eligible to receive an award. The Institute's Awards program caters for projects of all sizes, and organisations alike. Entries are judged separately in five distinct categories.
Our Awards for Excellence in Concrete program fulfils the Concrete Institute of Australia's mission, "to promote and develop excellence in concrete research, technology, application, design and construction".
Judging is currently taking place and we are looking forward to promoting another exciting group of Award entries that showcase excellence in concrete.
