It is awards season in the property world and Inovo is delighted to once again celebrate the success of projects we have been involved in.

The Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall, project managed on behalf of Selwyn District Council by Inovo’s Mark Cobden, took home a Public Architecture category award at the New Zealand Institute of Architecture Canterbury Awards in early June. CDHB’s Christchurch Hospital Outpatients Facility and the Rose Historic Chapel rebuild, planned and programmed by Inovo were also recognised - Christchurch Outpatients in the Public Architecture category and the Rose Chapel in the Heritage Category.

Christchurch Outpatients also received a Merit Award for exceptional property projects in the Health and Medical category at the Property Council New Zealand Property Industry Awards 2019 last week. iFly Queenstown, another Inovo planning project, was recognised with a Merit Award in the Tourism and Leisure category.

Congratulations to the all the project teams involved!

Welcome to New Business Manager

Inovo’s Directors are delighted to welcome on board Ryan Croy, who has joined the team as Business Manager. Ryan is a familiar name and face to many within the South Island construction industry, after 15 years in management roles for a prominent national construction company.

Ryan is a natural fit for the Inovo team, sharing our collaborative and open approach to our projects and previously leading highly successful projects and teams for many of Inovo’s significant clients, including the University of Canterbury, Christchurch International Airport Limited, Canterbury District Health Board and Ara Institute of Canterbury. As Business Manager, Ryan will apply his commercial nous and wealth of experience in operations, people management, commercial partnerships, construction methodologies, risk and financial management to his new role.

Ryan will be based in our Christchurch office. We welcome his fresh perspective as we become a stronger, more focused team in 2019.

With a wealth of expertise, this is a natural progression for Andrew’s role, looking after the day-to-day management of the Auckland team and providing operational insight and input into the strategy and business planning at Board level. Andrew’s appointment is a reflection of the company’s successful plan for growth, becoming a stronger team ready to expand our capacity, quality service and client base across the country.

Prior to joining Inovo, Andrew provided strategic project management services and specialist advice to public and private sector clients throughout the Auckland region, including Auckland Transport, Auckland Council, Wairaka Land Company (Unitec), Waitemata District Council, Ministry of Education, Heart of the City and Precinct Properties. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Auckland University and a Diploma of Construction from Hong Kong University. 

Andrew has been an asset to the company in his management role and will continue to apply his unique qualities and skills as a Director. We hope you’ll join us in congratulating Andrew, and we look forward to his contribution in the future, leading Inovo and our clients to continued success.

Director Peter McAuley, representing Inovo, joined co-sponsor Harcourts Grenadier yesterday to present Youth Pathways with a very large cheque for the funds raised at the annual charity golf day earlier this year. The amount raised is even more impressive given that the golfers headed out on a particularly drizzly grey day in Christchurch. Just under $40,000 will go towards supporting Youth Pathways and the Aspiring Youth Development Trust’s incredible work changing lives, creating individual development plans and providing one on one mentoring for young people in our community.
