The finalists in the last stage of the Australian Construction Achievement Award (ACAA) have been announced, with six projects in contention for the top prize.
The award aims to recognise the best construction projects in the country, and is presented by the Australian Constructors Association and Engineers Australia.
The projects in the finals include the Royal North Shore Hospital, 700 Bourke Street, Stage 2 of the Hunter Expressway, the Cape Lambert Marine Works, M80 ring road upgrade and Gold Coast University Hospital.
Lindsay Le Compte, the executive director of the Australian Constructors Association, says the judges were impressed with the complexity of the projects this year.
"The Australian Construction Achievement Awards finalists, together with the construction companies behind them, represent world-class expertise and innovation in developing and implementing construction solutions," said Mr Le Compte.
The winner will be decided by a judging panel after assessing the projects. The decision will be determined by the team's ability to reach project parameters, the optimisation and complexity of the work and the impact the project has or will have on the community.
The recipient will be announced at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Thursday May 8, 2014.
