WGANZ Design Awards 2018 Winners
The Windows and Glass Association of New Zealand (WGANZ) is a not-for-profit organisation that sets the standards for New Zealand’s window industry. In 2018, Omega Windows + Doors won two WGANZ awards for the following projects:
Ramaroa by Omega Kapiti
Category: Commercial to $100,000 - WINNER
Ramaroa, the new heritage centre at Queen Elizabeth Park, is a stunning nod to the history of the site - reflecting the rich Maori heritage and use by US Marines in WW2. Initially designed to be large-span, single-glazed commercial joinery, Omega took the opportunity to use high performance thermally-broken joinery so the building not only looks good but withstands the demanding weather conditions.
Showroom by Window Innovation
Category: Window Manufacturers Showroom (Large) - WINNER
Specialising in new home builds and the replacement window market, Window Innovation’s Christchurch showroom is set up with full-size examples so clients can see and touch the final products. Features like their ‘Hot Box’ demonstrates how different products perform in comparison with each other. Their refrigeration unit shows how condensation forms on different products. Customers can truly experience what their new windows and doors will look like, and how they will perform all year round.
