IPWEA NZ Asset Management Excellence Awards 2023 - Now open for entries!

The IPWEA NZ Asset Management Excellence Awards present an opportunity to celebrate and showcase excellence across asset and infrastructure management projects in Aotearoa New Zealand.

A successful infrastructure project brings together teams from local government, central government, consultants, contractors and suppliers, truly showcasing collaborative teamwork. The awards celebrate and recognise projects that enable sustainable communities through asset management excellence.

All awards entries must select one specialist category to enter into. Each project submitted will also be automatically entered into its relevant project value category.

All category winners will be considered for the IPWEA NZ Supreme Asset Management Excellence Award, Kōmata o Te Rangi.
