The 2009 ASTT Awards for Project and Person of the Year were presented at last year’s Gala Dinner. The NGRS Project was the recipient of the Project of the Year Award. Alan Sutton from Kembla was awarded Person of the Year and Joel Chong from Calibre Projects was awarded Young Person of the Year.

Project criteria

You can nominate a project that you have been involved in or any other project you are aware of provided it has been completed in Australasia. Please give a physical description of project, the location, the owner, engineer, contractor, and date completed as well as a description of why the project is being nominated.

Projects will be judged on; innovation in concept, novelty of technology, environmental benefit, and occupational health and safety benefit, as well as overall presentation.

Projects of the year will be automatically nominated for the ISTT Awards, which will be presented in Singapore in 2010.

Person of the Year
You can nominate an individual who has made major and sustained contributions to the trenchless industry in any area of activity within the industry. The Award recognises a contribution over and above the call of duty. (It does not recognise contributions to a specific company; rather to the whole industry.)

Young Person of the Year
This award also recognises major contributions to the industry, but the nominee must be aged under 40 as at 17 October 2010.

Entries should be no more than 800 words, excluding any images or appendices, and presented in word or PDF format. Don’t forget to provide your own details too. You may be contacted if more information is needed to process the nomination.
