Judges’ comments

The Forsyth Barr Stadium was stated by Hawkins as the very core of their efforts of a number of building projects throughout New Zealand in readiness for Rugby World Cup 2011.

Built on 3.1 hectares of reclaimed land overlooking Otago Harbour, the stadium is purpose-built as a highly versatile facility capable of hosting all kinds of business, entertainment, community and educational conferences and events.

The challenges were enormous and the project was carried out under the relentless gaze of a critical constituency. It could easily have gone very wrong but instead the team has delivered a magnificent result.
