Three Victoria students’ finalists in Excellence Awards

Thursday August 18, 2016

Three Victoria University of Wellington Architecture students have been named finalists in the Hays National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Excellence Awards.

Pip Barr, Vanessa Coxhead and Georgia Bartley are finalists in the student/ apprentice category, which celebrates students and apprentices who demonstrate a high level of potential and commitment within the construction industry.

NAWIC President Donna Howell says “The number of women in the construction industry has grown exponentially in recent years. NAWIC encourages these women to pursue, establish and sustain successful careers. The awards applaud their achievements and those organisations remedying the gender imbalance.”

In Victoria’s School of Architecture, which includes Building Science, 45% of students are female.

The awards evening will be held on September 14 in Wellington.
