Environment the Big Winner at this Year’s NAWIC Awards
The NAWIC (The National Association of Women in Construction) Awards, held on 20th Mar 2014 at the old Fremantle Prison, recognises and celebrates the top achievements of women in construction.
One of the big winners at this year’s Awards was our environment, with recognition of the growing emphasis on efficiency, waste management and recycling within our construction industry.
Awarded for her work in this area was Jenny Campbell from independent environmental consultancy ‘Encycle Consulting’. The award placed Ms Campbell amongst some of the state’s leading sustainability champions who have demonstrated a commitment to building a prosperous and sustainable construction industry in WA.
Recognised for her passion and contribution towards reducing waste from the fast growing industry over the past 6 years, Ms Campbell is dedicated to providing ongoing assistance to the commercial construction sector. Her vision - to reduce waste and improve sustainability at all stages of a building’s lifecycle, from smart design, clean construction, efficient operation and considered demolition.
Ms Campbell feels that WA is really starting to take the issue seriously and is prioritising the challenges of excessive waste, but there is still some way to go.
“I love seeing how much more efficient the design and construction of new buildings in Perth is now compared to even say 5 or 6 years ago. “Moving forward, I really want to this go even further and look at ways to ensure sustainability is at the forefront of construction and flows on to everyday households.” Says Ms Campbell.
Ms Campbell’s unwavering passion for the environment is what drives her business success. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and commitment to the environmental issues here in WA have played a pivotal role in the fight to convert valuable resources found in construction waste.
On presenting the award, Steve Burnell from trailblazing recycling company ‘The Bin Guys’ was exuberant; “Jenny is such a champion for the recycling industry in WA, she really deserves this recognition for her dedication and hard work.
Ms Campbell, said “The award means a lot me because it shows the increasing value of recycling to our economy and our environment”.
