Triple whammy of sustainable architecture accolades for Nelson and Marlborough

Triple whammy of sustainable architecture accolades for Nelson and Marlborough

The Nelson Marlborough Architecture Awards, the first in a series of regional architectural excellence awards, this week recognised three properties for their sustainability credentials. 

The Trafalgar Park Stage 1 Upgrade by Irving Smith Jack Architects, an upgrade of the NMIT Arts and Media Building by Irving Smith Jack Architects Ltd and a West Coast bach designed by C Nott Architects all picked up an award in the Sustainable Architecture category. 

“On these three projects the architects had carefully considered the environmental impact and performance of their designs,” said awards jury convenor, architect Virginia Fay. “It was obvious that careful consideration had been to the future life of these buildings, and to ensuring they would be adaptable to future needs.”
