The Theatre has won a top prize in the 2015 Property Council New Zealand and Rider Levett Bucknall Awards – gold in the Hawkins Heritage and Adaptive Reuses Award category. The ITR also won merit in the Coffey Education and Arts Property category.
The annual awards celebrate excellence in property development based on economic and financial factors, project vision and innovation (including degree of difficulty), design and construction, owner and user satisfaction, and sustainability and efficiency of operation.
Chief Executive Neil Cox thanked those involved as he collected the gold award, at the ceremony in Auckland. “This theatre has become world famous through its rebuild and to be honoured by the Property Council for this massive collective team effort is the absolute cherry on the top.”
