-- A fourth year of wins in the commercial property industry’s top sales awards event --

May 7 2014 —Colliers International took six out of nine awards at the annual Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) New Zealand commercial property awards last night.

For the fourth year running, Colliers International won the RICS overall commercial sales award making it the top sales agency in the commercial, industrial and retail sectors for 2013, following on from its awards in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Chris Fossick, global vice president of RICS, presented Colliers with the award for most transactions over $5 million during the 2013 calendar year, based on data provided by CoreLogic and verified within the industry.
Colliers also picked up five other RICS awards based on qualitative criteria. The deal of the year and team awards were based on project success, complexity, client satisfaction, innovation and adoption of sustainable development principles. The wins included:

Deal of the Year Award - Sale of Silverdale Centre, awarded to the corporate sales team, led by Peter Herdson, and supported by the Colliers retail team, led by Leroy Wolland. The Silverdale Centre, developed by The Warehouse, is an open air retail centre on a 7.2 ha site in Rodney District with 36 retail units anchored by The Warehouse and Countdown supermarket. It was sold fully leased in May 2013 for $78 million.

Project Management Team of the Year – awarded to the Colliers project team, led by Alec Dunn, for a seismic strengthening project for an Auckland office tower.
