Hawkins Construction South Island Ltd
Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin
Dunedin City Council
Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium needs little introduction – New Zealand’s first undercover stadium and the world’s largest natural grass, permanently covered stadium, opened for the Rugby World Cup in 2011.
This project was carried out in an extremely challenging environment – attempting a whole series of innovations under rigid time and cost constraints. It could easily have been a debacle, but instead was a magnificent tour de force, a credit to all involved.
