    West Australian women in construction recognised at NAWIC Awards

    Construction is notorious for being male dominated, which is why associations such as the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) have been able to make such a significant and important impact on the industry.  

    Last Thursday, Western Australia’s top women in construction were recognised for their achievements at NAWIC’s annual Awards of Excellence local chapter awards.

    Among the winners was Kate West, a consulting group leader at Arup, who took home the top award – the Swan Group Vision Award. West has worked on projects such as the Terminal 1 Domestic facility in Perth.

    “The NAWIC Awards celebrate both leaders and up-and-coming women in construction. It’s important to recognise the contribution and value women add to the construction workforce,” says Rebecca Carrick, NAWIC WA president.

    “We received an exceptionally high calibre of entrants across the nine categories this year, and all winners truly deserve recognition for the creativity and passion they bring to the industry.”
