New Terminal Awards

New Plymouth Airport's new terminal building is a finalist in New Zealand Building Industry Awards

"The construction industry by its nature, demands strong collaboration. A key determinant of how successful a construction project will be is the relationship between those commissioned to design, document, and deliver the resultant building. The Hays Construction-sponsored Interdisciplinary Collaboration Award celebrates exceptional examples of collaborative partnerships between consultant(s) and contractor".

Designers Institute of New Zealand Best Design Award Gold Winners - Toitanga Award

We are proud to announce that we won gold at the Designers Institute of New Zealand Best Design Awards, the biggest in Australasia.
The Toitanga award recognises Maori storytelling and artistic expression and how that is infused into a resulting design and construction of the terminal

“Te Hono embraces tangata whenua expertise and narratives and weaves these throughout every aspect of the airport terminal, an impressive feat for an architectural job of this scale. The diverse range of artworks create a rich and engaging experience for all travellers," the judges said in their comments.

The terminal was also a finalist in the Spatial Design Communication category which reflected how a project used its allocated space to create a tone and vibe while also acknowledges the tools, processes and efforts required to bring it to fruition.

A huge congratulations to everyone involved, this award truly reflects the essence of the new terminal building, the story behind its architectural design and narrative.
