Property Council Southern Excellence Awards
On Friday 5 October, Anderson Lloyd was once again proud sponsors of the Judges Choice Award at the Property Council New Zealand Southern Excellence Awards. The standard of entries was so tightly contested, the judges found it impossible to separate two particular nominees and therefore presented the award to two winners: Keeley Pomeroy MNZIQS of AECOM and The Crossing Retail Precinct Team nominated by Southbase Construction.
Keeley Pomeroy of AECOM
A uniquely talented and ambitious individual, Keeley’s background in construction coupled with his innate aptitude and technical skills as a Quantity Surveyor have seen him excel in the cost management profession. As Principal Quantity Surveyor and the Technical Building Information Modelling & Digital Engineer lead of the AECOM Australia New Zealand Cost Management Business, Keeley displays a huge amount of dedication, innovation and strong focus. Where he sees a gap in not only his organisation but the industry, he sets out to fill out and is always striving to find better and more cost-effective solutions for clients through the development of new processes and techniques. Keeley is a leader in his chosen field and is passionate about giving back and sharing knowledge, as evidenced by his involvement in and founding of multiple committees, authorship of reports, and presentation at conferences. Also finding the time to provide pro bono quantity surveying services to community organisations in Christchurch, teach a Cost Planning course at Ara and mentor and train other staff at AECOM, the judges were in awe of Keeley’s attitude, tenacity, and community involvement and drive to succeed.
The Crossing Retail Precinct Team
The Crossing Retail Precinct Team from Southbase Construction is an excellent example of team work, trust, experience and good old Kiwi determination. With a common end goal driven by ambition and the desire to deliver a quality project, the award winning results speak for themselves.
There were many facets of this team and their work style that impressed the judges – the innovation that was shown in a very complex project where old was melded with new, the ability to manage multiple tenants’ ever changing requirements, their clear and concise coordination and communication with clients, tenants and sub-contractors and their overarching culture of inclusiveness. With so many challenges, layers of difficulty and moving parts, this team displayed tactful management and technical ability to produce an outstanding legacy for the Christchurch central city.
