Entries are now open for the 2015 Concrete3 Sustainability Awards. This is an opportunity to show how your concrete-based product, project, programme or initiative has contributed to New Zealand’s sustainable built environment.
The Awards celebrate achievement at the highest level of construction by acknowledging excellence in the production or use of concrete across the environmental, economic or social aspects of sustainable development.
The 2012 Supreme Concrete3 Sustainability Award winner was Athfield Architects for its extensive refurbishment of the new Christchurch Civic Building on Hereford Street.
This project involved the transformation of what was the New Zealand Post Building into an architectural statement that added tremendous value to Christchurch.
In 2013, Nauhria Precast was recognised for its stunning use of precast concrete throughout the redevelopment of Hurstmere Green in Takapuna, Auckland.
The Award is sponsored by the Cement and Concrete Association of New Zealand (CCANZ). Entries close on Friday, September 4, 2015, and the winner will be announced at the New Zealand Concrete Industry Conference in October.
Full criteria and details can be found, along with an entry form, at www.sustainableconcrete.org.nz.
