Congratulations to our 2019 Winners!
On 14 June 2019, we hosted over 1,400 guests to celebrate the very best of the property industry at the Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.
These awards are presented to outstanding property projects, developments or substantive refurbishments across New Zealand. Above all, the Awards recognise buildings that provide an outstanding return and/or delivery of service potential on investment of funds. For some this means a return on speculative investment; for others it means creating a development that supports productive activities, which creates value for both owners and users.

MERIT is awarded to projects through the judging process that are deemed to have something distinctive about the way in which the development or project was undertaken. There may be multiple Merit Award winners in each category.
EXCELLENCE is presented to projects that are deemed to be amongst the best in their chosen category, and that symbolise excellence within the property industry across all aspects of the evaluation. There may be multiple Excellence Award winners in each category.
BEST IN CATEGORY is selected in each category if a project stands out as the “best of the best” against the other project entries in their category. There is only one Best in Category Award winner in each category, with these projects also in the running for the overall Supreme Award.
The Awards Dinner is the biggest party in property - where the industry comes together to collectively applaud our winners and celebrate their achievements.
