2019 Innovation & Excellence Awards
The annual QMCA awards are back to celebrate the outstanding work that our members, partners and suppliers undertake in Queensland.
Our Award Event will welcome over 500 leaders from the contracting, engineering, consulting, government and industry environments.
This year we’ll continue to showcase the brightest and best that our industry has to offer.
For entrants in the Subcontractors and Suppliers Award category, we’ve removed the full written submission component to make the entry process a whole lot easier.
Judges will assess Subcontractors and Suppliers Award entries received in the initial ROI phase, and conduct interviews between 8 July and 9 August, in place of the full submission requirement.
The 2019 award categories are:
QMCA Contractors Award (QMCA members only)
The QMCA Contractors Award seeks to showcase the most innovative concept applied on a civil infrastructure project in Queensland within the last two years.
QMCA Design Consultants Award
The QMCA Design Consultants Award showcases the most innovative concept in an engineering discipline associated with a civil infrastructure project in Queensland.

The QMCA Subcontractors and Suppliers Award recognises the most innovative concept by a subcontractor or supplier in supporting the delivery of a civil infrastructure project in Queensland.
