Stride Property's world-class Waste Management headquarters sweep property awards

Waste Management New Zealand’s new Auckland headquarters have made a clean sweep of the 2020 Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards. The 9,100m2 facility beat 114 other nominees to take home the Resene Green Building Award, the CBRE Industrial Property Award and the Rider Levett Bucknall Supreme Award.

Owned and developed by Stride Property and designed by Jasmax and Eclipse Architecture, the facility was described by judges as a ”fit-for-purpose, world-class development which innovatively combines operational and non-operational activities whilst improving corporate welfare”.

The Waste Management project was one of ten best in category winners at the annual awards, held at Spark Arena this evening. The black-tie event, which has been twice postponed due to Covid-induced restrictions on gatherings, is one of the largest awards dinners in New Zealand attracting around 1,600 people. The Awards recognise projects that provide an outstanding return on investment; be it a financial return or in delivery of value to the client and community. The other best in category winners were all eligible for the Supreme Award.

Auckland Council published the Kāinga hou Māori housing values design matrix.

Development and homes that allow Māori to flourish as Māori

Māori living that:

  • Is underpinned by core Māori values
  • Is founded on common focus and/or kinship
  • Is human-centred (inclusive, accessible, intergenerational, safe, scaled)
  • Enables communal living in a contemporary Māori context
  • Promotes hauora through design which values and enables Māori cultural practices to take place
  • Recognises and integrates with natural and human systems
  • Acknowledges mana atua, mana whenua and mana tangata
  • Provides shelter, security and a place to stand and call home
  • Allows for the expression of rangatiratanga

Kāinga Ora scoops Māori Crown Relationships Award

The entry focused on the Porirua Housing Partnership with Te Rūnanga O Toa Rangatira, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and the Ministry of Social Development.

The judging panel said that the partnership was modern and future focused, and embodied the criteria for this year’s award, run by the Public Service Commission, which focused on auahatanga (innovation), whakapūmautanga (durability) and kōwhiringa (opportunities).

Tā Matiu Rei, Chairman and former Executive Director of Te Rūnanga O Toa Rangitira, commented on the fantastic collaboration between themselves and the government agencies involved.

Daniel Soughtton, Manager Business Strategy, said this project reflects what’s possible when we engage early and meaningfully with Māori around a united set of goals for a place and its people.
