2017 Surveying Consultants

Excellence Awards


In conjunction with Surveying 2017, The National Surveying Congress, Consulting Surveyors National have established annual awards to recognise the peak surveying consultancies in Australia (i.e. Consultancies achieving the highest level of excellence in delivery of surveying services). The awards will be in two categories based on surveying business size, viz.

(1) Small Consultancy - 15 employees or less and

(2) Larger Consultancy - greater than 15 employees.

The awards are open to any Australian businesses that are land surveying consultancies or multi-disciplinary businesses with a substantial land surveying business unit.

Applicable businesses are invited to self-nominate for the awards by Tuesday 7 February, 2017 on the nomination form available at here

I encourage all firms (whether large or small) to consider nominating for these awards, which will be presented at the Congress Dinner at Surveying 2017 on Friday 17 March, 2017.

Any enquiries in relation to the awards should be directed to me on 0409 131 992 or
