Arts, Civic & Culture
Starting in 2012, the Christchurch Art Gallery began a 4 year long upgrade project. This included post-earthquake repairs and seismic upgrades on this iconic building. Being home to nine separate exhibition areas, a reference library, auditorium, education workrooms, restaurant, shops and extensive collection storage made this an extensive project.
Exhibition spaces were to be across two floors, connected by a dramatic Carrara marble staircase from the foyer.
Overall project works totalled $59.6m. These were divided into separate contracts including retro-fitting base isolation, repairing damage and overall strengthening. The works were completed on time and $1.5m under budget, thanks in part to our Quantity Surveying processes.
Metro Sports Facility
Sports & Recreation
Construction Cost Consultants were involved in early-stage planning for community services such as swimming pools, libraries and community services on behalf of Christchurch City Council. Initial plans covered the creation of a Metro Sports Facility, and also explored the future use/viability of Lancaster Park Stadium or its possible replacement.
Construction Cost Consultants were employed as the in-house Quantity Surveying service for over 20,000 residential rebuild valuations and 10,000 commercial rebuild valuations in the Christchurch region.
CCC Produced reports to enable negotiations to be completed on 100% of commercial claims and 80% of residential claims. This assisted us in creating a standard process of producing rebuild valuations, which is now used throughout the industry.
A large project, out contract value of claims was $4.5bn.
Sport & Recreation
Horncastle Arena, Christchurch’s largest indoor venue, was renovated between 2012 and 2016. Extensive strengthening works were carried out, bringing the seismic strengthening to 67% NBS, an increase of over 30%. Works were carried out without disrupting the programme of events, and included creating additional concrete columns and installing many tons of additional steel into the roof structure.
