Kapiti Sports Turf Community Facility


The Kapiti Sports Turf Building is a piece of public sector architecture that was awarded Regional Highly Commended in the ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Awards.

The trust established a new international grade hockey turf several years ago. The next stage of the development was to construct a facility with a practical approach that contained changing rooms (to cater for four teams), lounge with bar and commercial kitchen that can accommodate functions, receptions and after match presentations, offices, equipment storage, and an umpire’s room.

Kapiti Turf Trust

We wish to formally record our appreciation of your part in the building of the Pavilion and changing rooms at the Kapiti Hockey Turf. As you will have noticed, we as trustees are very pleased with the building as is the entire membership of the Kapiti Hockey Club. The design, colours and utility of the building are outstanding both for its core purpose as a hockey pavilion and as an event venue.

From the initial design and through your support in the selection of the construction company you became a key part of our team. Your introductions and advice for the selection of the consultants was most helpful. Your responsibility and professionalism through the building stage with the service from both you and Mike Robertson being the highest quality and support to the Trust.

The support of you and your firm in terms of giving and driving the community nature of the project undoubtedly helped in bringing the project within budget.
