Judges’ comments

The Christchurch earthquake of September 2010 abruptly halted the well advanced extension and upgrade of the Kaiapoi New World Project. Pragmatic decisions were quickly made to demolish and rebuild anew on the same site, with ground remediation underway for the new build only two months later.

Leighs Construction continued their relationship with Foodstufffs on an open book progressive tender for the new build. Completion was achieved on 15th December 2011. This reopening was an important milestone for the people of Kaiapoi in rebuilding their community – the facility provided 90 new jobs once it was opened.

The opportunity to incorporate many green build initiatives in the new design was achieved with collaboration from all the team. The quality of the build was very high and the outcome excellent for Kaiapoi and its residents.

Judges’ comments

Rejuvenating a tired shopping centre while maintaining many existing tenants is never an easy task. Foster Construction accepted this challenge however, as well as the need for the project to be completed before the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The demolition phase continually provided more surprises, with further unexpected remedial works adding cost and programme pressures. Foster demonstrated their commitment to achieve the client’s needs and produced a quality result. Very good H&S initiatives were undertaken not only for the workers but for the retail public as well. The client has continued to negotiate additional works with Fosters since the project finished.
