Expressions of interest to participate in the regions first event-scape design challenge, the Master Plan Design Challenge, closed this week. The opportunity to reshape Mystery Creek Events Centres 88 hectare property appealed to 11 specialist firms based within New Zealand and abroad. Organisers and land owners, National Fieldays Society, were pleased with the level of entries considering the tight two week application period.
Following a scrupulous judging process, three finalists have been invited to continue the competition. Each finalist company is awarded $5,000 for this achievement. Assets & Facilities Committee Chairman Tony Begbie elaborates;
"The panel were extremely impressed by the calibre of applicants, presentation standards and the range of master planning experience; local, national and international.
The objective selection process focused not only on capability, but also understanding of the project, the proposed methodology, and what different perspective the applicants could bring to Mystery Creek Events Centre.
In addition, entrants were judged on relevant experience and team composition. All three finalists rated highly in each category:
Finalists have until 5.00pm Friday 11th May 2012 to submit their site design and rationale for the expansive Mystery Creek campus. Winners will be announced at a function on Friday 25th May. The winning firm will be invited to work with Mystery Creek Events Centre to develop their design, including consultation with stakeholders and technical refinement of the plan. The first phase of the project will commence before the end of the calendar year.
