The Papatoetoe Multisport and Community Centre is a new multisport and community centre was developed in partnership with the Papatoetoe Sports and Community Charitable Trust and Auckland Council (Manukau City Council). Extensive consultation with multiple sporting and community groups laid the foundation for one of the very few successful multi stakeholder facilities of this type. The facility consists of a three-lane indoor cricket training centre, strength training area, reception and administration offices, multi-use and community areas, two function areas, commercial kitchen and canteen, external balcony areas and multi-use changing rooms.
A holistic approach to sustainable design includes significant open space landscape regeneration, robust low maintenance materials that naturally weather with time and full on-site treatment of waste water. The buildings are all naturally lit and ventilated. Extensive consultation with multiple sporting and community groups laid the foundation for one of the very few successful multi stakeholder facilities of this type.
Papatoetoe Sports Centre recognised as the Most Outstanding Recreation Facility in New Zealand at the 2013 New Zealand Recreation Association (NZRA) Awards. Details here
