Dunedin Heritage Re-use Award 2010

Nominations opened last month for the Dunedin Heritage Re-use Award which recognises successful, innovative heritage re-use building projects.

The award is administered by the Dunedin City Council (DCC) and New Zealand Historic Places Trust (NZHPT) and is awarded annually to nominated building owners or developers who have, in the opinion of the judging panel, undertaken the most innovative, successful, and sympathetic re-use of an historic building.

Individuals or organisations may nominate buildings for consideration or building owners may enter their own projects. Eligible projects will have had work completed in the 12-month period to 1 November 2010.

The award consists of a certificate and a cash prize of $1500, which is awarded to the property owner and nominations must be in by 7 January 2011.

The competition will be judged by a panel consisting of DCC staff, architects, independent developers and heritage professionals as nominated by the Heritage Buildings Economic Re-use Steering Group. They will assess entries against criteria such as innovation and creativity, sensitivity of adaptation, retention of heritage values, contribution to the urban environment and sustainability.
