Bond academic nominated for inaugural National Awards

Bond University Associate Professor of Construction Management Dr Rick Best has been nominated for an Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS) inaugural Infinite Value Award.

Dr Best is one of only three academics from across Australia, who has been shortlisted for the MBM Research & Teaching Award.

The AIQS launched the Infinite Value Awards to honour the hard work of both its members and the affiliated professions within the construction industry. These awards celebrate those who have dedicated their careers to educating and increasing the knowledge and skill–base of the profession through teaching and research.

The award acknowledges education professionals who have either worked in the field for a minimum of twenty years or who have made an outstanding contribution to the field of research and teaching.

Director of the Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture, Professor George Earl, congratulated Dr Best on his shortlisting for the award saying it was a reflection of his valuable contribution to the industry.

“Dr Best has been a leader in his field for many years and is a valuable member of our academic staff,” said Professor Earl.

“His dedication to educating our future industry leaders is clearly evident, and as the Director of the Centre for Comparative Construction Research he adds value to our student experience and learning,” he said.

A Gala Dinner for the inaugural Infinite Value Awards will be held in Melbourne on Thursday 15 November 2012.
