The 2017 NECA NSW Excellence Awards



The 2017 NECA NSW Excellence Awards has lived up to its name and high expectations.

The event was hosted by NECA which saw more than 700 contractors, suppliers, educators, government representatives, family and friends brought together to celebrate the night.

Thirteen excellence awards projects and three apprentice award winners were presented by sponsors of the event and NECA NSW life members.

Executive director of NECA NSW Oliver Judd says he couldn’t be more appreciative of the dedication and hard work the finalists and winners had devoted to the industry.

“The future of our industry is extremely bright in NSW. The projects we have seen presented this year have amazed the judging panel and selecting a winner from each category has been a very difficult task. The apprentices have a great knowledge of their trade and we are delighted by their eagerness to excel and grow in our industry. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists for your outstanding achievements,” says Oliver.

“We would like to again thank our sponsors for getting behind the NECA NSW Excellence Awards. Without their support the event would not be possible.”
