Thirty buildings around Canterbury all scooped up the prestigious awards from the Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects Local Architecture Awards this year, with a range of styles, new and old, recognised.
Among the winners is an exciting project we worked on recently, Riverbank Quarter. Topping the Housing—Multi Unit category the mixed-use development was hailed by the judges as an exceptional example of urban design. We worked alongside Stufkens + Chambers Architects and DGM Group on the 17 carefully considered terraced townhouses in a desirable CBD location and we’re proud to have played a part in the development of this innovative project.
Our team provided building and construction surveying, civil engineering and legal title surveying throughout the process. We also liaised with solicitors to develop an innovative way to assign carparks that maximised the space available.
And the unit title plan we prepared is now used by LINZ as a best practice example of unit title development plans! Great work to everyone on the BLG team who was a part of this process.
