Hosted by the Australian Constructors Association and Engineers Australia, the award seeks to recognise Australia’s best construction project and the companies behind it. This year’s finalists are John Holland Group, Seymour Whyte and AECOM for their work on the Cairns Southern Access Corridor Stage 3, Laing O’Rourke for its delivery of the Central Station Metro, the Rookwood Weir Project by Sunwater, GHD, ACCIONA and McCosker Contracting, and the Western Sydney International Airport Bulk Earthworks by CPB Contractors and ACCIONA.

“This year’s finalists span from roads to rail, water infrastructure to airports. Each project has been delivered in ways that contribute to a more progressive and sustainable construction industry,” said Australian Constructors Association CEO, Jon Davies. “We’re seeing construction excellence at its best, but we’re also seeing a real commitment to improving skills and worker wellbeing, as well as approaches to environmentally responsible outcomes.”

Engineers Australia CEO, Romilly Madew, AO said the 2024 contenders are at the forefront in leveraging teamwork and technology to ensure inclusivity and sustainability in urban and rural development.
“The finalists for the Australian Construction Achievement Award showcase exceptional innovation, collaboration, and expertise,” she said, “highlighting the role engineering plays in building connected communities.”

The winner of the Australian Construction Achievement Award will be announced at the Doltone House in Sydney on August 8 in conjunction with the Foundations and Frontiers forum.
