Papatoetoe Multisport and Community Centre
The Papatoetoe Multisport and Community Centre was developed in partnership with the Papatoetoe Sports and Community Charitable Trust and Auckland Council. The building was recognised as the Most Outstanding Recreation Facility in the 2013 New Zealand Recreation Association Awards.
The facility features a three-lane indoor cricket training centre, strength training area, reception and administration offices, multi-use and community areas, two function spaces, a commercial kitchen and canteen, external balcony areas and multi-use changing rooms.
A holistic approach to sustainable design included 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, which helps to reduce overall energy consumption and costs.
Auckland Councils manager of parks, sport and recreation stated that the council were proud to support the community led facility and congratulated all people who had contributed to its success. The building is noted as being one of the lowest maintenance and least tagged facilities of its type.
