AIB Award for Scenic Railway Team

As the QLD team were celebrating their win, our Sydney guys were attending the NSW AIB Awards dinner and awaiting the outcome of our Scenic Railway entry in the 2014 AIB NSW Professional Excellence in Building Awards - Commercial Buildings $10 - $50 million. The AIB awards are unique as they are the only Australian awards that recognise the individuals' professional excellence in the building and construction process, as opposed to the project or completed structure. Their wait was rewarded and Project Manager, Hylton Bloch was announced as the winner in the category and then went on to win the prestigious Professional of the Year Award. The two wins saw Hylton lost for words, yet able to deliver an albeit unprepared but fantastic acceptance speech on behalf of the entire Scenic team.
