Victoria on the River has proved an award winner for Edwards White Architects and Hamilton City Council, who have won a top Waikato property award for the inner-city park.

The Waikato property industry came together on October 25 for the 2018 We are Waikato Awards that recognise outstanding contributions to the built environment.

The eight category winners were announced at a ceremony at Wintec’s The Atrium. Property Council Waikato Branch president Brian Squair says it was a pleasure to acknowledge the projects and pay tribute to the people committed to region’s growth.

“We saw some of the great things the people in our industry are doing. We saw passion, commitment and sheer hard work, qualities vital to making our regional industry thrive.”

The coveted Veros Property Judges’ Choice Award for 2018 went to Edwards White Architects and Hamilton City Council for Victoria on the River.

“The judges felt the Victoria on the River project delivered significant value to the Waikato community, crafting a space for people to gather and enjoy the river and surrounds in the Heart of Hamilton City,” Brian Squair says.

“It has been a successful project in terms of connecting the cityscape back to the Waikato River. More than that it represents a fresh way of thinking about urban design in Hamilton City.”

The Boffa Miskell Urban Design Award went to Waipā District Council and Beca for the Te Awamutu Hub Community Precinct, Playground & Pop’n Good Bike Park.

“The judges were impressed with the development of The Hub area, it was clearly evident in the submission that the design provides facilities for the wider community and the urban design principles used have created a wonderful facility that promotes social, cultural and environmental wellbeing through appropriate design,” says Brian Squair.
