We’re excited to congratulate the five Jasmax project teams who collectively won six awards at this year’s Best Awards.

At the ceremony hosted at the Viaduct Events Centre last Friday 10 October, the late Ivan Mercep’s final project, Te Uru Taumatua, was awarded Jasmax’s highest accolade of the evening, the Purple Pin in the Ngā Aho category. The project, submitted in partnership with Tūhoe and Arrow International, was recognised for its ‘Aotearoa-ness’ and the high level of meaningful collaboration between all parties involved in the project; including large numbers of the local community in Taneatua.

Auckland Waterfront’s event and conference centre, Shed 10, received a Gold in the Public & Institutional Spaces category, and Bronze for its sustainable design initiatives.

SkyCity and Peter Gordon’s Level 53 restaurant, The Sugar Club, was recognised in the Spatial Design Hospitality category with a Gold.

Three35, one of the first projects completed in the Christchurch rebuild, was awarded a Bronze in the Built Environment category, whilst the interior and workplace design of its tenant’s premises, MediaWorks, also received a Bronze in the Office & Workplace Environments category.

In addition, the following projects were shortlisted as Finalists in their respective categories:

  • Te Uru Taumatua – Sustainable Spatial Design

  • BNZ Agile – Best Effect
