ACRA Remedial Industry Excellence Awards 2020
After being postponed due to the 2020 pandemic, we finally held our ACRA awards night on 5 March 2021 at both the Sebel Pier One in Sydney NSW, and at the Novotel Brisbane QLD.
ACRA President Grahame Vile described how the submissions were received, showcasing the breadth of our industry and its specialist capabilities. Well done all, and to all entrants thank you for striving to higher standards.
The judges had a difficult time this year due to the number of award entries that had come through, and of course, the pandemic delaying entries, and of course the extra categories included as ACRA is more than just concrete repair now. Your judges were David Miller CEO of the Concrete Institute of Australia, David Mahaffy from Mahaffy and Associates, and lastly Dr. Nicole Johnston from Deakin University. We thank you all for your time and effort and feedback to make the next awards year more streamlined when it comes to judging in 2022.
