NCTIR win international people’s choice award

Our NCTIR team, in alliance with NZ Transport and KiwiRail, has won the prestigious Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) People’s Choice Award for 2018.

This international award recognises projects that transforms people’s lives and the NCTIR team’s involvement as part of the Kaikoura earthquake recovery work literally “moved mountains to reconnect communities”.

As the only finalist from the Southern Hemisphere, NCTIR has been recognised globally for their work in restoring transport networks to the South Island following the Kaikoura earthquake.

NCTIR Project Director Brian Kirtlan says the team are a diverse and exceptionally talented group.

“I’d like to thank all of our team members, past and present, for your hard work – we couldn’t have achieved what we have without you. I am very proud of what we have all achieved over the last two years – we achieved amazing things through the huge effort of so many people and with the support of those around us.”

“We’re delighted that so many people in the local community and across New Zealand, and the world, voted for us and we’d like to thank everyone for their support. The People’s Choice award is due recognition of the pride many New Zealanders felt when the transport networks were reconnected just a year after so much devastation.”
