The 1,575-square-metre Victoria University of Wellington Maru Project is a finalist in the Education Property Award category at the 2020 Property Council New Zealand / Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) provided commercial certainty led by Tony Sutherland.

The project forms one of Victoria University of Wellington’s steps towards their 10-year development plan and aspiration to expand and provide innovative spaces.

Designed by Athfield Architects, the three-level project required the demolition of existing structures, excavation to form a new 525-square-metre basement car park and retaining features built on the side of a reclaimed cliff.

The retaining structure included six anchors stressed to 1600kN, and allowed the construction of the two floors for engineering and computer science and office facilities.

Together with the Property Council New Zealand, RLB is passionate about promoting and celebrating leading practice in the property sector via the Property Industry Awards program.
