Hutt City Council building projects have won five prestigious awards for commercial and architecture projects in five days.
Naylor Love received a gold award at the New Zealand Commercial Projects Award ceremony on May 12 for the council’s revamped and earthquake-strengthened administration building.
The commercial building award recognises excellence in building processes and practices, celebrates the quality of work and craftsmanship and the contractor’s contribution to the construction relationship.
Hawkins Group received a silver award for its work on the Walter Nash Centre in Taita, Lower Hutt.
Architecture + scooped up three awards this week for their work on the administration building in the heritage, interior architecture and public architecture categories of the Wellington Architecture Awards.
Deputy Mayor David Bassett says it is a wonderful result and it complemented Lower Hutt’s wider rejuvenation strategy.
“It’s fantastic to receive public and professional confirmation Lower Hutt has public buildings we can all be proud of.”
David says it is important to recognise and congratulate the council’s own project team for its contribution to designing interior spaces that worked well for the council and its staff.
“We’ve got a great team achieving great results for the council, Lower Hutt and our residents.”
