The Australian Construction Achievement Award (ACAA), presented by the Australian Constructors Association and Engineers Australia, brings together the best construction projects, delivered by the nation’s top construction companies.

This prestigious award is the most significant event of the year for the construction industry and recognises the involvement and significant contribution that individual projects, teams and organisations have in the infrastructure sector throughout Australia.

"In these difficult times, the construction industry has soldiered on, trying to maintain a sense of normality. It will be important to recognise these efforts get to the other side, and the ACA Awards are the premier forum for doing this’, says David Jurd, one of the four judges on the ACAA 2020 judging panel.

Individual project entries showcase the skills and innovation of their project teams and construction organisations. Project finalists are assessed against the "best of the best" constructors from across Australia. Previous winners are recognised as leading organisations with award winning projects and receive the high praise from the Australian Constructors Association and Engineers Australia.

The winner is determined after a rigorous judging process that assesses the ability to achieve key project parameters, complexity and optimisation of the project, and ultimately the project’s impact on the community. 

"The Australian Construction Achievement Award throws a spotlight onto the most complex construction challenges in Australia", says Prof Sue Holliday, another member of the 2020 judging panel.

"The entrants all deserve to win. The finalists exemplify the very best projects in the most challenging environments. The workforce team culture, the complex constructions, the innovative approaches to solving problems all make for exceptional built outcomes".

The winner of the Award may expect the following:

  • A specially commissioned ACAA sculpture to take pride of place in the winner’s organisation
  • The ability to showcase the business, it’s people and their skill sets and promote the organisation to clients and stakeholders, demonstrating the organisation’s leadership in the industry
  • Recognition as the leading project for the year in the construction and engineering industries

If you have an outstanding project that you would like to showcase submit your entry today. 

Submissions close 28 January 2021.
