Christchurch construction projects have been described as world-class after winning national building awards.

The city's new airport terminal, temporary sports stadium, facilities at Christchurch Hospital and earthquake repairs at St Andrew's College were all winners at the New Zealand Commercial Project Awards last night.

Awards spokesman Warwick Quinn said the number of Christchurch winners showed the city's rebuild was "very much underway".

It was pleasing to see the world-class construction in the city and he was excited about the "innovation and excellence".

The awards are run by the Registered Master Builders Association, and are the commercial off-shoot of the House of the Year contest. Judging criteria include design, contract management, construction and delivery of the project.
