2024 ACE Awards

Christchurch - October 24, 2024 at 6:00pm - 11pm


The ACE Awards celebrate Aotearoa New Zealand’s best consultants working in the built and natural environment and the exceptional mahi being done for communities here and overseas.  

The awards recognise the consultants who go above and beyond ‘business as usual’ to deliver projects and initiatives.  Our award entrants are often up against really complex challenges, like tight timeframes, small budgets or remote locations, so the results we’ve seen from this year’s entrants are truly remarkable.   

It’s the rigorous judging criteria that makes the ACE Awards stand out. Our judges are consultants at the top of their game, handpicked each year from the industry. As well as outstanding consulting services, they focus on technical expertise, sustainable value and client satisfaction.  

Projects are awarded gold, silver or merit based on the level of achievement, how much the project has exceeded expectations and whether it sets a new industry standard. Judges may also present special awards where there is a unique contribution to the industry or community.
