Stranges Building

Opened by the Prime Minister in April 2014, the Stranges Building is the first new commercial building to be completed in the core of Christchurch’s CBD since the February 2011 earthquake.

The 1500m² Stranges Building and adjoining 600m² Glendinning Hill building have been built to house a mix of hospitality and office spaces. Leighs Construction became the first tenants of this impressive new build.

The buildings have been constructed to IL4 standard - the same standard as emergency facilities. This is evident in the unique egg-shaped core, crucial to the strength of the building, which allowed the architects to use lightweight materials on the exterior to give an overall impression of light and space. A full-size concrete pad was built to test the formwork components of the structure prior to final construction. The exterior glass and aluminium, a key feature to the building, was supplied pre-cut from Singapore. 

With coloured glass fins, dramatic wood-lined half-archways, laneways and courtyards, the Stranges Building has delivered a new lease of life to Christchurch’s CBD,and Leighs Construction are proud to be able to call this impressive new building home.
