The National Infrastructure Awards celebrate individual and organisation achievements considered critical in driving infrastructure forward across the country. The award program is convened by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia and overseen by an independent judging panel.
Government Partnerships Excellence category - New Footscray Hospital Project team
The Government Partnerships Excellence award recognises the New Footscray Hospital Project team for the strong relationships the team has built with project partners from Western Health and the Plenary Group consortium.
This is the second award the New Footscray Hospital Project has claimed this year, after winning gold in the GOV Design Awards 2022 for its virtual engagement room.
