Two UC building projects recognised at Architects Awards

UC achieved an almost clean sweep in the Education Building category of the Canterbury New Zealand Institute of Architects Awards last night with two UC projects, Ernest Rutherford and Rehua winning a combined five awards at the event.

In the Education Building category Ernest Rutherford won architecture and interior architecture awards as well as the Resene Colour Award. Rehua also won architecture and interior architecture awards.

The two projects will now be considered for the National New Zealand Institute of Architecture Awards held in Queenstown later this year.

UC’s Programme Director Brian Phillips was on hand to receive the awards along with project architects and was pleased with the result.

“This is an outstanding achievement for everyone involved and acknowledges the thought and consideration that has gone into the campus transformation,” he says.

Brian Phillips and Senior Project Manager Alan Palmer accompanied Jasmax, DJRD Architects, Royal Associates Architects and Athfield Architects Ltd design in collecting the awards at the ceremony held in Christchurch on 6 June.
