Construkt is proud to announce that Three senior members of our team have been selected as panellists for the Auckland Urban Design Panel (AUDP).

The Auckland Urban Design Panel (AUDP) provides independent reviews of significant public and private developments across the Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland region, with the panel’s design advice promoting good design and quality environmental outcomes, ultimately resulting in better outcomes for the community and city.

Karl is a Managing Director at Construkt, has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, delivering complex briefs for multi-unit residential, commercial, hospitality and urban design projects. As the longest-standing member of the practice, Karl’s wealth of knowledge and experience is invaluable across all projects.

Kate is one of our Principals and Lead Urban Designer, who has amassed considerable expertise across New Zealand. With over 15 years of experience delivering masterplans and large scale projects, Kate is passionate about creating legible and connected developments that have a sense of place.

Madushin, Kate and Karl are all new panellists. Their appointments to the AUDP are for three years, commencing in January 2024. Each panel is comprised of four to six people drawn from a larger pool. The panel has representation from; the Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA), Tuia Pito Ora New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects (NZILA), Te Kōkiringa Taumata New Zealand Planning Institute (NZPI), Property Council New Zealand (PCNZ), Ngā Aho and the Tāmaki Makaurau Design Ope (TMDO) Auckland Council.
