Isaac Theatre Royal architect shares Outstanding Achievement in Design Award

Isaac Theatre Royal architect shares Outstanding Achievement in Design Award
September 19, 2016

Vanessa Carswell of architects Warren and Mahoney has been named as a joint winner of the Outstanding Achievement in Design Award by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).

Presented in Wellington last week, second annual Hays NAWIC Excellence Awards have been hailed as “inspirational leaders who are passionate about changing the construction sector”.

The awards celebrate the outstanding achievements women are making in New Zealand’s construction industry.

Carswell received her NAWIC Award for employing innovative ideas to resolve complex design issues on the rebuild of Christchurch’s landmark Isaac Theatre Royal. Working in difficult conditions with limited power in Christchurch’s red zone proved no obstacle for Vanessa who re-engineered the theatre to expand the functional space by an additional 400 metre².

Gemma Collins of Fletcher Construction shared the Award with Gemma Collins of Fletcher Construction for her work on Auckland’s Commercial Bay office tower.
