World-class logistics facility named top industrial property at 2023 Property Industry Awards


Auckland, 23 June 2023: EBOS Group’s (Healthcare Logistics) purpose-built facility took home the CBRE Industrial Property Award tonight at the Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.

The latest addition to The Landing Business Park at Auckland Airport, the 19,000sqm pharmaceutical grade facility houses New Zealand’s only fully environmentally enclosed yard in a full cold-chain site with zero time out. This means that all goods – whether they are arriving at or leaving the facility – can remain in a temperature-controlled environment.

As with many construction projects that were built in the past few years, site inspections were not permitted and neither the tenant (EBOS) nor the owner and developer team from Auckland International Airport were able to meet in person until near the end of construction.

For such a complex facility, this meant implementing a very organised and deliberately intensive design strategy, with multiple virtual workshops and a comprehensive peer-review system.

In addition, the facility incorporates a 4-star green sustainability rating and has a system for tracking energy and water performance. Energy-efficient motion-sensor lighting was installed, as were three 3000L tanks for storage of rainwater. Other features include EV charging points, accessibility features and bike racks. A fraction over 92 per cent of construction waste was diverted from landfills.

The Property Industry Awards, now in their 24th year, celebrate and showcase superior examples of iconic projects in property development and investment across a broad range of sectors and design disciplines, recognising outstanding projects, developments, and refurbishments.

Property Council New Zealand chief executive Leonie Freeman said, “The winners and finalists are a world-class showcase of purpose-driven spaces, as we recognise the extraordinary achievements of those who design, develop and craft New Zealand’s best properties.”
