(Architect/Designer)

With minimal funding the local community rallied to provide a high  quality commercial fit-out for next to nothing whilst providing opportunities  for innovation, creativity and collaboration to support the local Chamber of Commerce.

Judges Comments

 

Our award winner is a relative newcomer in in the local commercial construction market showing that when a plan comes together every one benefits; in this case when a local organisation needed a fit-out but had very little capital to undertake it with.  

The organisation’s vision was supported by a local contractor willing to undertake these works at minimal cost. Sub-contractors were brought on board in the same spirit, and with the passion and generosity of all involved this project was achieved. 


   





SPECIAL PROJECT AWARD

Project

Child Cancer Foundation, Christchurch

Entrant

Fletcher Construction (Construction Company)

Project Partners

Sheppard & Rout Architects (Architect/Designer)

Owned by

Child Cancer Foundation

With the Child Cancer Foundation building the residential unit on the back to sell to help fund the building of the new facility, the 2 two storey buildings provide a place for children and their families receiving treatment at Christchurch Hospital.

Judges Comments

 

Relationships played a big part in achieving the one prime objective on this project - to provide Child Cancer Foundation a superb new facility that provides a supportive environment for children and their families.

 

Taking a narrow inner city site, the team created a dedicated support and administration facility, together with an attached apartment intended for sale to cover costs. All parties donated considerable time, materials and goodwill to deliver, for the Foundation, a debt-free home.

 

A dedicated, generous and focused project team – thoroughly deserving of this special award.
