Isaac Construction is proud to have had some success as a company at the CCNZ National awards, which were held as part of the CCNZ conference last Thursday, 29th July and Friday, 30th July 2021.

Due to Covid this year’s awards covered projects and performance from the last 2 years.

WINNER - Category 1 – Project of the Year - Peninsula Connection 7 (DCC)

Kevin, Dan and the entire team delivered an amazing project for our new customer (DCC) which was recognised as the best project delivered, in the entire country, over the last 2 years, at a value of less than $2m. This is an outstanding result as there is a huge number of projects that fit this category across NZ, to win it is testament to the team involved. It is also the first time that Isaac has won a National Project Award (only 5 given out each year – 1 per category). This win represents the excellence in performance and commitment that the entire team displayed. Some interesting history about the creation of the “Toki Paraihe” award:
