In lieu of February's sadly cancelled conference, BuildLink GM, Simon Burden, has been out and about handing over the trophies and the congratulations in person.
"It is great to get out of Auckland and present awards to BuildLink members, John Weyers from BuildLink Tairua (photo above left) and Drew Ridley from Kiwi Timber in Horotiu (photo above right).
"Unfortunately, this year we will have to courier out some of the other awards due to Covid-19, and although the planned Award Dinner would have been awesome, our priority remains the safety of our members, suppliers and their families.
"I hope to present more awards in person later this year when I catch up with our members."
And here are the 2020 winners (and nominees):
