World-class industrial facility wins Supreme Award


A new industrial manufacturing facility has won the Supreme Award in the Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards 2017

The Sistema manufacturing facility received the Rider Levett Bucknall Supreme Award, after being awarded the ‘Best in Category’ for the Yardi – Industrial Property Award at the annual black-tie gala dinner at Spark Arena in Auckland on 16 June.

The state-of-the-art 55,000-square-metre manufacturing facility, located in Mangere, Auckland, is also home to Sistema’s international headquarters.

Featuring a strong operational focus, the building’s design was a stand-out for Chief Judge Andrew Evans due to the attention given to all aspects of work flow, future flexibility, divisibility, and expansion.

“The functionality of the design ensures a smooth and logical flow of materials, people, and resources through the production process, facilitating the efficient operation of a world-class business,” he says.

These standout attributes were also recognised by Newell Brands, a US Fortune 500 company that recently acquired the Sistema plastics business, and in the process signed a long-term lease for the continued occupation of the building.

“The project is world-class and demonstrated a high level of consultation and collaboration between the design teams, builder, and occupier,” Evans adds.

“I am also delighted to see the Supreme Award go to an industrial development that is pushing the boundaries in design and functionality, delivering the most significant industrial building in New Zealand.

“This building displays the innovation and attitude that has made Sistema Plastics a world leader.”

Over 1,500 property professionals from around New Zealand attended the Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.
