Two RLB projects – Auckland’s Te Pokapū Aotea Centre and Wellington’s Wakefield Hospital Stage 1 – are in the hunt for prestigious property industry awards.
They are among 83 finalists that have been announced ahead of the 2022 Property Council New Zealand / Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.
The awards program showcases innovative projects and pioneering solutions inspiring leadership in New Zealand’s property industry.
The “iconic” Aotea is competing with six other outstanding projects for the Civic, Health and Arts Property Award.
According to Geoff Speck, the $67.5 million facility provides a profound experience for both the arts creator and the arts consumer.
“I have no doubt the revitalised and quite stunning Te Pokapū Centre will prove to be a pivotal performance venue for Auckland for decades to come.”
Wakefield Hospital in Wellington is also a finalist in the civic, health and arts category.
“Improving patient care is a priority for all health care providers to achieve high patient satisfaction and ensure staff have high quality facilities to enhance patient care. Wakefield Hospital’s investment in upgrading and extending their existing facilities is key to achieving goals for patients and staff into the future,” says RLB Principal Bevan Hartley.
Winners will be announced at the 2022 Property Council New Zealand / Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards, to be held at Spark Arena on Friday 12 August 2022.
