BNZ Centre Stage 1

The BNZ Centre comprises two, multi-storey buildings for office and retail use. At the heart of the square is a 1,000m2 landscaped area, overlooked by the office spaces. The 30,000m2 Stage 1 development is made up of one six-storey building, with a mezzanine carpark. 

Leighs Construction was involved in this project since the outset, prior to any concept designs. The objective was to create a simple design, enabling sensible decisions that would enable the project to meet budget. One of the challenges in rebuilding Christchurch is the commercial reality of rental levels considered against project costs, hence the need for high quality, innovative and economic solutions, which Leighs achieved on this project. 

Design allowed for ground improvement solutions using Rammed Aggregate Piles (RAPs) and Tension Piles, along with Fuseable Link K Braces. Sub-contractor design and build package contract agreements were in place for façades, building maintenance and access systems. 

 Stage 1 tenants range from government departments to hospitality and retail outlets.
