Te Uruti Building 508px

Te Urutī in central Christchurch is now one of only three buildings across Aotearoa New Zealand to hold an aspirational 6 Star NABERSNZ rating.

It is the first building in Te Waipounamu South Island to receive NABERSNZ's highest certification, setting the bar for others to follow.

Te Urutī is part of the Pita Te Hori Centre located in the Christchurch central business district. It is in the West End between Cashel St, Hereford St, Montreal St and Cambridge Terrace

The superb energy performance backs up the sustainable approach taken in the building's design and construction, with the office holding a 5 Green Star Office Built rating.
