BCHF receives first ACENZ Gold Award of Excellence

In 1985, BCHF received its first Association of Consulting Engineers New Zealand (ACENZ) Gold Awards for Excellence. This particular award which was the first of many, was for the design of the Nelson Regional Sewerage Scheme (NRSS) in New Zealand. The Awards continue to recognise outstanding projects in the industry.


The NRSS provided an innovative solution to sewerage disposal in an ecologically sensitive area, combining mechanical aeration with stabilisation and maturation ponds.
