Les Mills City Club under repair
Exercise fans will be glad to know that Les Mills City Club in Cashel St is currently undergoing the required repairs by Leighs Construction to allow the premises to re-open in the New Year.
A little over two years ago, Leighs Construction completed the exciting four-storey 3875sqm premises on the Cashel St site, which had been previously occupied by the original Les Mills gym. Sadly the city club facility, like all facilities within the CBD, sustained damage during the February 22 earthquake.
A Leighs Construction team, in conjunction with Les Mills, are making good progress on site effecting the required repairs ranging from the injection of low mobility grout for re-levelling purposes, through to the addition of further enhancement to the facility. As part of this project Leighs Construction is also completing the construction of two car parks, one either side of the club for Les Mills, which will provide high quality, on-hand parking for club members.
"This facility incorporates some of the latest environmentally sustainable design features surpassing anything of its kind in the southern hemisphere," says project manager Andrew Clucas.
These include a façade that maximises thermal and acoustic performance through the combined effect of pre-finished fibre cement exterior cladding, double glazing and multi-cell polycarbonate interior cladding.
"It is absolutely great to see facilities like this getting ready to operate again in Christchurch," says Andrew.
"Everyone really welcomes any facility that represents a return to normality."
