AIB Western Australian Chapter Announces Professional Excellence in Building Awards

The Western Australian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Building recently announced the 2015 AIB Professional Excellence in Building Awards in Perth on Friday, 17 April, 2015.

The presentation of the awards was made at a gala awards dinner at the Pan Pacific, Perth which was attended by over 250 building and construction industry’s leading figures.

“These awards are the ultimate personal achievement for a professional builder. They recognise the contribution and leadership shown by individuals to the successful completion of a construction project, reinforcing the fact that the success of any building firm can be attributed to those responsible for construction projects”, said Robert Hunt, AIB Chief Executive Officer.

The judging criteria for the AIB Professional Excellence in Building Awards weights the contribution of individuals and the challenges that they face. A decision to bestow a Professional Excellence Award is based upon challenges associated with the complexity of the project in its construction phase as opposed to the characteristics of the completed structure.

Recipients of Professional Excellence Awards within the AIB Western Australian Chapter will go forward to the national awards that will be held in Sydney, September 2015. The ultimate honour is to receive the distinction of AIB Building Professional of the Year Award which is awarded to the most outstanding builder from across Australia.

The Australian Institute of Building congratulates the 2015 WA Building Professional of the Year, Jon Stone FAIB from Brookfield Multiplex Constructions Pty Ltd for his work on the Fiona Stanley Hospital.

“On behalf of the AIB and the industry I congratulate all the winners. The quality of the winners is testament to the high level of professionalism that exists in the construction industry”, Mr Hunt said.
