A calm looking hospital areaWe are thrilled to announce that Starship Children's Hospital has been recognised with a Merit Award in the ‘Warren and Mahoney Civic, Health and Arts' category for our Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) expansion project at the prestigious Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.()  

Hailed as the most prestigious property awards programme in New Zealand, the awards celebrate excellence in design and innovation. 

The project includes additional ICU and high dependency unit (HDU) beds, as well as dedicated spaces for whānau and staff. These areas are designed with natural light, bright colours, and ceiling tiles that evoke a tree canopy, creating a calming, nature-inspired environment.
