AgResearch Lincoln Facility

2024 Canterbury Architecture Awards winner

AgResearch’s new $103 million science facility has opened in Lincoln, Canterbury. The facility is expected to generate important new research to support farming in the district and beyond. Our Christchurch Design Windows team were lucky enough to work on this project alongside construction company Naylor Love on the expansive curtain wall.

AgResearch Chief Executive Sue Bidrose says the new two-storey, 7600 square metre facility, comprising an open-plan office wing and a science facilities wing, will be a valuable addition to the science community. Being located right next to the university and in close proximity to other research institutes and agriculture businesses, it would also have an important role in connecting people.

“One of the driving factors for this new facility was that our previous buildings were ageing and not providing the best working environment for our people. But, also, we wanted to create a place that inspires people to come and do great work for New Zealand,” Sue says.

“I’m really proud we have a new facility that is welcoming to all, will deliver what the agriculture sector and rural communities need from us, and really adds to the growth and development of the local area too.”
