The Naylor Love team enjoyed a very successful night at the 2020 NZIOB New Zealand Building Industry Awards:
- Craig Harris received an Excellence Award and was the Category Winner in the Steel Construction NZ Projects $10 – $20 Million Award for New World Durham Street.
The judges said that Craig had to manage a complex project on a contaminated site where logistics were a constant challenge. His team building skills were evident as was his understanding of cultural differences on-site. Craig carried out a separate toolbox meeting on-site with the Mandarin speaking personnel after the English-speaking safety toolbox. This was a complicated project that was delivered well.
- Carl Bohnen got an Excellence Award and was the Category Winner in the Gib Projects $35 – $100 Million Award for Wellington East Girls’ College Major Redevelopment.
The judges felt that Carl’s communication and leadership skills ensured the success of a highly complex project, beset with unforeseen challenges and requiring a significant number of changes on a difficult site.
- Gary Davidson was Highly Commended in the Site Safe & CHASNZ Safety Excellence Award for the timber & steel jigs for prefabrication installation at Nelson Airport Terminal.
The judges noted that this was an excellent example of how prefabrication can eliminate significant Health & Safety risks.
The New Zealand Building Industry Awards acknowledge and celebrate the practitioners behind New Zealand’s most successful building projects.
