Property Council New Zealand’s South Island Branch were proud to present the annual Southern Excellence Awards, held on Friday 10 November 2017 at the Air Force Museum in Christchurch. These awards aim to acknowledge and applaud the people in property, the crusaders who have paved the way and whose vision will shape our cities and towns for future generations. Coming together as the property industry, the awards night recognised and celebrated outstanding leadership and innovation in the South Island industry.

Property Council South Island branch president, Roger Davidson said the awards bring the industry together to acknowledge the passion and skill required to negotiate the South Island’s unique environment.

“The South Island has some of the most complex challenges and exciting opportunities in the world as we rebuild an entire city, support New Zealand’s premier tourist drawcards and provide supporting infrastructure for geographically spread and diverse towns, cities, universities, industry and businesses.”

Mr Davidson says the calibre and scope of the nominations shows the breadth of thinking and talent present behind the South Island’s infrastructure projects.
