The Victorian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Building (AIB) hosted the Professional Excellence in Building Awards at Fenix, Richmond in Melbourne on Friday 20 July.
The AIB Awards are acknowledged through peer recognition. It’s about how it was built, not what was built.
The judging panel was consistently impressed with the quality of entries which resulted from construction projects delivered by professionals that have utilised planning, innovation and construction management skills that are nothing short of world class. The evening showcased some of the best Victorian builders and their project and construction managers.
AIB National President, Paul Heather said “The Awards recognise the contribution and leadership shown by individuals to the successful completion of a construction project, reinforcing that the success of any building firm can be attributed to those responsible for construction projects”
Three of our Project Managers and one of our Project Directors were recognised for their success:
- Marco Bonadio, GMHBA Stadium Stage 4 Brownlow Stand Redevelopment, Professional Excellence, Commercial Construction $25 Million to $100 Million (second image)
- David Purcell, MPavilion 2017, High Commendation, Commercial Construction up to $5 Million (third image)
- Chris Bainbridge, Monash University Caulfield – Business School Project, High Commendation, Commercial Construction $5 Million to $25 Million (fourth image)
- Tony Isaacson, Deakin University Burwood Link Pedestrian Bridge, Professional Excellence, Infrastructure (fifth image)
Special congratulations to Marco Bonadio for receiving the Victorian Chapter Commercial Building Professional of the Year for his leadership in delivering the $76 million GMHBA Stadium Stage 4 Brownlow Stand Redevelopment. This is the second time Marco has received this award.
