Excellence for Inovo at Property Industry Awards

The Inovo Team was honoured with not one, but two, Excellence Awards at last Friday’s Property Council Awards evening in Auckland. The properties received awards in two different categories and are set in two diversely different environments - testament to the comprehensive range of agile services that Inovo is able to offer its valued clients.

FLOCKHILL Homestead received Excellence in the Tourism and Leisure category. As a luxury accommodation tucked against the Southern Alps in the Craigieburn Valley, environmental considerations were at the heart of this project. This included how the building and landscaping integrated with the surrounding landscape, building and ongoing resource use, future-proofing, embodied carbon and operational performance. The project drew on services across Inovo including resource consenting, surveying, civil engineering and project  planning & management.

Te Mātāwai (Greys Ave), a multi-building, multi-unit urban apartment complex in the heart of Auckland city was designed as a diverse, supportive and connected community where residents can build positive social networks and have accessible services that will support their health, well-being and personal development.

Inovo has been involved with both of these projects since inception, guiding redevelopment plans, establishing robust project plans, governance, stakeholder management and best-practice project management resulting in solutions that exceeded the clients’ expectations.

With 141 nominations across 11 categories, the Property Council Awards are representative in the very best of design, innovation, sustainability, construction and financially sound projects completed across New Zealand.

Final images captured of historic hotel

Inovo was engaged to capture a full colour 3D point cloud of the Club Hotel, Bluff, as a historic record prior to its demolition. Unlike a photo, the point cloud transforms raw scan data into as-built model, capturing all the dimensions and detail of this once-grand hotel building.

The Club Hotel was built in 1914 on the south side of Gore Street. It was designed in Italianate style by architect Frederick Annison and is a significant example of a relatively grand hotel building for a small Southland town. The heritage-listed building is structurally damaged and therefore unsafe. A demolition Resource Consent has now been issued to the long-vacant building’s owners, Bluff Oyster and Food Festival Charitable Trust, who stage the Bluff Oyster and Food Festival on an adjacent site but had to cancel the event in 2022 due to the former hotel having a dangerous building notice on it.  

In recognition of the site’s historic value, resource consent conditions included, among others, detailed building records being made of the exterior of the hotel. That’s where Inovo’s laser scanning and modelling work comes in.

Inovo work allowed detailed information of the building to be preserved and, if needed, reproduced in the future.
