Stockland national sustainability manager Amy Hogan has taken out the sustainability award – the Acoustic Logic Award for Contribution to Sustainability – at the 2018 National Association of Women in Construction Awards held in Sydney last week.
Infrastructure NSW executive director Sara Haslinger was awarded the Lendlease Crystal Vision Award for Advancing the Interests of Women in the Construction Industry award for her work at Infrastructure NSW implementing a policy that drove up the number of women on major infrastructure expert review panels.
“This not only diversified panel decision-making, but also exposed the NSW government to dozens of senior female leaders in construction and infrastructure, and exposed talented women to new career opportunities,” NAWIC NSW president Sarah Hogan said.
“Sara’s contribution to the ongoing success of the NSW government pipeline has been immeasurable,” Ms Hogan added.
A partner at Shaw Reynolds Lawyer, Ms Haslinger’s background also spans advisory and project management in the engineering, infrastructure, and building and construction sectors.
Alison Mirams, chief executive officer at Roberts Pizzarotti, took out the top business award for working her way up the ranks of the recently established Australian construction firm.
Before being appointed to lead Roberts Pizzarotti in February 2017, Ms Mirams held senior executive roles at Lendlease and Multiplex.
“Alison has strong commercial expertise and significant site experience, making her an exceptional role model for women in our industry. Passionate about growing the female talent pool, Alison is a mentor, speaker and promoter of women and girls in construction,” Ms Hogan said.
