The Fulton Hogan construction manager of the $115 million first stage of the Christchurch Southern Motorway project has been judged New Zealand's young engineer of the year.

Christchurch man Ben Hayward was given the award at the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (Ipenz) Engineering Excellence Awards dinner in Auckland last night, beating out three other finalists.

The award recognised contributions to both the engineering profession and the greater community.

Awards judge Laurence Zwimpfer said Hayward was a role model for other young engineers.

Hayward recently worked on the Christchurch Southern motorway project and was promoted to construction manager as the project progressed from design to construction.

The large project was completed on time, to budget and with an exemplary safety record despite having to split the project to free staff for urgent rebuild work.

A chartered professional engineer, Hayward received a masters degree at the University of Canterbury and has been with Fulton Hogan since 2004.
