2016 ACT Excellence Awards

15 Mar 2016

The NECA ACT Excellence Awards are open to all current members of NECA ACT.

The NECA Excellence Awards are the most prestigious award offered in the industry.  They celebrate excellence in quality, technology, innovation, management and commercial expertise.  Importantly, the Awards provide contractors with the opportunity to demonstrate their top projects to peers, clients, industry and the community.

So why not enter a project?  Just think about the benefits of having your company being showcased at the Awards presentation evening in front of 300 key people from our industry.  This about what this exposure will do for your business and in particular how this will benefit your relationship with your clients and employees.  The best part is that it is free to enter.
