SH6 Hat Trick A Highlight Of CCNZ Awards

7 September 2023:

A hat trick can be as rare in civil construction as in cricket.

At Friday’s CCNZ National Awards, the SH6 remediation project team pulled off this feat when they won the $5 to $20 million project category, following their big wins at Engineering NZ’s ENVIs and the IPWEA NZ Asset Management Excellence awards over recent months.

Pictured is SH6 Project Manager Matt Loach receiving the award from representative of the award sponsor, Hirepool NZ’s Gary Richardson. With Matt on stage is Fulton Hogan’s Nelson NOC Contract Manager, Nick Webby.

A big thank you to Waka Kotahi for having the foresight and confidence to allow the team to do, in an intense 48-day road closure, what would have otherwise taken more than a season, and to designers WSP, the many subcontractors and the teams from six Fulton Hogan region teams who made it possible.

There was also good news for Fulton Hogan’s Hastings District Council Rural Road Maintenance team which won the Management and Maintenance of Assets category. No area has been harder hit by weather events, and performing to their utmost no matter what comes their way is their hallmark.

With nine finalists and winning of the two six categories, we were proud to have led the way at the 2023 awards. The CCNZ national awards began in 1978 and are known for their robust judging processes, which includes judges physically visiting entries to identify the processes used and to be walked through the specifics on the site.

CCNZ also announced Waikato Regional Manager Kerry Watkins’ appointment to the CCNZ executive council, and honoured former Fulton Hogan executive, and past CCNZ President, Tim Ford, with life membership of CCNZ.
