Christchurch Rebuild

Ian Smith is leading our growing team in Christchurch, who are successfully delivering a wide range of new build and seismic strengthening projects.

As the future of Christchurch emerges, our Christchurch team has been working with clients on a wide range of new build projects and the remediating and strengthening of existing buildings. Right now we’re proud to say we are project managing the Canterbury Earthquake Memorial project, creating a place to remember as a memorial for the Canterbury earthquakes.

Notably we successfully managed the seismic remediation of the Ibis Hotel which was the first hotel to reopen in the red zone. The Novotel hotel soon followed.  We made it business as usual for Telecom completing many recovery projects for them and the dis-establishment of the Telecom Exchange Building.

Amongst our other project highlights that are shaping the city, we have worked with Inland Revenue and Ministry of Social Development on their new 5,000m2 Call Centre at the Airport Business Park. We helped Buddle Findlay by managing the fitout of their new premises in Victoria Street.

We made a difference to children and families through working with Stands to create their special Children’s Village on Glenelg Spur. We helped restore Acland House for Christchurch Girls High School and we are working with many Schools to deliver new classrooms and integrated learning environments.

We’re also working on the Central Integrated Government Accommodation project bringing several government agencies together, by co-locating into new central city buildings.

We’re proud to be involved as Christchurch City takes shape. We know what the rebuild issues are, and know the difference between what companies think they need and what they actually need. That’s because we’ve lived through it ourselves and are involved in some to the biggest seismic strengthening, remediation and new build jobs being undertaken in the city.
