2022 NZ Building Industry Awards
The Naylor Love team enjoyed a very successful night at the 2022 NZIOB New Zealand Building Industry Awards:
- Matt Soppit received an Excellence Award and was the Category Winner in the Gib Projects $4 – $10 Million Award for Mercy Hospital Level 2 Refurbishment, Dunedin.
- Sam Brunt & Monty Wong won an Excellence Award in the Charitable Education Trust Projects Under $4 Million Award for Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ōtepoti, Dunedin.
- Brendon Keenan (along with Corde Rhodes, WSP; Joshua Joe-McIndoe, RCP; Elliot Smith, White Associates; and Jeremy Harding, Department of Corrections) received an Excellence Award and was the Category Winner in the Hays Interdisciplinary Collaboration Award, Excellence for Modular Build Programme.
The project involved completing seven Modular prison units across four different sites, three in Waitaha/Canterbury (Christchurch Men’s Prison, Christchurch Women’s Prison, Rolleston Prison) and one in Te Whanganui-a-Tara/Wellington (Rimutaka Prison). The team had to implement the previous contractor’s incomplete design, as well as address quality and design issues.
The Judges said the project team rose to the challenge of picking up and completing complex projects in various stages of completion across four sites, and under considerable time pressure due to the projects being behind schedule.
The New Zealand Building Industry Awards acknowledge and celebrate the practitioners behind New Zealand’s most successful building projects.
