Post-earthquake resurrection of Christchurch Art Gallery wins International Project of the Year Award
Chosen from a high calibre of finalists, the re-levelling of Christchurch Art Gallery was a landmark project for Mainmark and the industry, setting a new benchmark in earthquake remediation for large scale buildings.
The International Project of the Year Award is testament to the expertise and commitment of the Mainmark team, who worked tirelessly to deliver a truly innovative solution with tight project management.
The winner in this category clearly demonstrated the stakeholder involvement and support of other team members on the outcome of the project. They showed strong and innovative combination of technologies which delivered a great result for the client.
The Awards ceremony was held in London on Thursday afternoon. It was a fantastic day that brought together global leaders in the ground engineering industry to acknowledge and celebrate excellence and innovation in projects from around the world.
Fifteen awards were presented to showcase the industry’s finest geoenvironmental schemes, ground investigations, health and safety, product and equipment innovation, sustainability and industry expertise.
The International Project of the Year Award recognises a project that has delivered geotechnical innovation on the international stage. The calibre of finalists was outstanding, with projects from Sydney, Saudi Arabia, the Czech Republic, Qatar, the Russian Federation, Peru and of course, New Zealand.
As part of the entry process, in May, Russell Deller and I travelled to London to pitch the project to the panel of judges face-to-face and presented this video. See how we showcased the project and demonstrated why Mainmark is a leader in the ground engineering industry:
