RCG wins awards for commercial design excellence
RCG, received four awards at the national retail design awards on Saturday 30 August.
The RED Awards, run by the New Zealand Retail Interior Association, recognises design and commercial excellence in the retail sector.
In the service division, RCG received the premier award for the AMI Concept Store in Takanini, a design that has positioned AMI as New Zealand’s leading face-to-face insurance brand.
The concept store, the first of a new retail model which is being rolled out nationally, also won the Signage & Graphics Award, and the Colour award.
John Lenihan, Director at RCG says that as a result of the new design, sales immediately picked up and have remained consistent.
“AMI’s new store experience is globally innovative, it’s the best in the industry and the market’s response has surpassed expectations; their commercial results reflect this.”
It was the distinctive street level frontage of Ziera in Newmarket that won the company their fourth design accolade - the Shop Front Award.
Recently appointed Associate Director, designer Andy Florkowski said Ziera too have seen an upturn in business, “Alongside extremely positive customer feedback, the store results are exceeding business goals”.
Both Ziera and AMI are finalists in the Best Design Awards which will be announced in October.
In June RCG received two accolades at the Property Industry Awards. An Excellence Award for the Paul Keane Gymnasium at St Mary’s College, and a Merit Award for the Farro retail development.
The company celebrates 25 years of business this year, and is known for their ability to create commercially successful environments from a mix of professional property, architecture, design, and research expertise.
