Advances in mobile technology, automation and artificial intelligence, escalating consumer expectations and environmental sustainability are all transforming how people work, and the places where they work. In response, the projects shortlisted for the RCP Commercial Office Property Award within the 2021 Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards are reinventing the office.

While commercial tenants are looking to carefully manage their office space to remain agile and reduce costs, they also want space that connects people, fosters creativity and collaboration, and enhances human health, productivity and performance.

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) is honoured to have provided commercial certainty towards the following nominated projects:

1. CIAL AgriExport Precinct, Christchurch

“It’s a building that draws the eye with a sense of the dynamic, emphasising that you are approaching your destination.” Chris Perrins

2. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Auckland

“The workplace design was driven by a focus on wellness and employee wellbeing.” Hamish Dackers

3. Foodstuffs North Island, Auckland

“A commitment to sustainable practices and renewable solutions was key to balancing project constraints.” Chris Haines

4. PwC Tower, Commercial Bay, Auckland

“A striking design that stands proudly on the Auckland skyline, PWC Tower is the final piece of the $1b mixed-use Commercial Bay precinct designed by Warren and Mahoney in collaboration with Woods Bagot.” Steve Gracey

The 2021 Property Industry Awards demonstrate what can be achieved when strong teams work together for a shared goal.

Winners will be announced at the 2021 Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards on 24 November.
