Arrow International scoops national construction award

Christchurch project specialist, Steven van der Pol of Arrow International, has been awarded The New Zealand Institute of Building Medal.

The Medal, presented by the New Zealand Institute of Building biannually, recognises longstanding contribution of merit to the practice and science of building.

Arrow’s Strategic Development Director, Steven van der Pol, has worked on many complex national and international projects, but his current work has a strong focus on the rebuild of the Christchurch Central City. Prior successful projects include the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, the Canterbury TennisIndoor Centre, the St Andrews College staged development and a series of hotel developments for Scenic Hotel Group and Quest Hotels.

Van der Pol was admitted to the NZIOB as a Foundation Member in 1984, has served as a National Councilor for seven years and is a Past National President. He is a Fellow of the NZIOB. The Fellowship recognizes longstanding commitment to the principles of the NZIOB and the promotion of professional practices.

Steven is also a Board member of the Court Theatre Trust, in Christchurch, where he also played a significant role in the fast rebuild of the temporary theatre.

“I am delighted to have been awarded the New Zealand Institute of Building Medal,” said van der Pol.

“I work in this industry because I thoroughly enjoy the challenges and the opportunities, but I am thrilled to have been recognized for my contributions by my peers in such a meaningful manner.”
