About the build:
Dan Ashby, Director at Icon NZ, and James Sherriﬀ Project Director of Voco-HIE were both extremely proud of the Icon team and the project stakeholders after winning the Supreme Award at the 2023 Commercial Project Awards.
“This award solidiﬁ ed that hard work, integrity, and collaboration really does produce results. It is a recognition of Icon NZ’s position as the leading New Zealand builder of large complex CBD projects, and particularly high-rise construction,” says Dan.
“Voco-HIE really is a unique building with some unusual construction challenges. At Level 21 the structure and layout changed via transfer beams to accommodate diﬀ ering column grids. This needed some innovative engineering, extensive planning, and risk management,” explained James.
