2018 Concrete3 Sustainability Awards - Entries Open
Wednesday, 1 August 2018
This is an opportunity to show how your concrete-based product, project, programme or initiative has contributed to New Zealand’s sustainable built environment.
The Awards celebrate achievement at the highest level of construction by acknowledging excellence in the production or use of concrete across environmental, economic or social aspects of sustainability.
Previous winners have included The Pride, Lion Nathan’s integrated manufacturing and warehousing facility in East Tamaki, which made extensive use of recycled glass as aggregate in concrete, and the Northern Gateway Toll Road, of which every aspect, from design through to operation, considered ways in which to contribute to New Zealand’s sustainable development.
In 2010 the Tauranga Harbour Link’s unique “Mix M” took home the Award, while in 2011 the conversion of 21 Queen Street in Auckland into a modern and vibrant office/retail complex received the highest honour.
2012 saw the extensive refurbishment of the new Christchurch Civic Building on Hereford Street collected the top prize - a transformation of what was the New Zealand Post Building into an architectural statement that adds tremendous value to Christchurch. In 2013 the stunning use of precast concrete throughout the redevelopment of Hurstmere Green in Takapuna was recognised.
EA Networks Centre in Ashburton won in 2015, a multi-purpose indoor sports and aquatics complex that reflects the region’s commitment to leisure and community facilities. Most recently the top honour went to the refurbishment and extension of 133 Molesworth Street in Wellington.
