    The Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS) has announced the finalists for the 2014 Infinite Value Awards, which seeks to highlight the successes of the global construction industry and reward a variety of outstanding international professionals and projects.

    NSW leads the way with 11 finalists vying for the top honour across nine categories, while VIC, QLD, NT and WA are also well represented. ACT finalists include The National Arboretum Reception Centre by WT Partnership and built by the ACT Government, and local professional Fiona Doherty of Rider Levett Bucknall.
