They were also impressed by the detailed alignment of the fit-out and felt the quality of the workmanship was at the highest level.”

“The site was landlocked with adjoining properties and two street frontages in the heart of Christchurch’s CBD, which provided some challenges. Other issues included constructing a basement with a high water-table, ground contamination, soft spots, and archaeological finds…

This well-designed and integrated expansion of an iconic Christchurch department complex is a deserving category winner.”

“This building features a timber frame with an innovative seismic design allowing the structure to absorb seismic forces with the minimum of long-term damage. The roof was constructed in gigantic sections in a vacant hanger, and transferred to position via the taxiway, in between aircraft movements at one of the busiest regional airports. This prefabrication process demanded exacting dimensional accuracy, but allowed for faster construction and tighter quality control than might otherwise have been possible. Overall, an extraordinary effort by an extraordinary team.”
