Working in partnership with CPB, Benmax will deliver the mechanical services for the new Parakiore Recreation and Sports Centre (formerly known as the Metro Sports Facility) located in Christchurch. The international standard aquatic and indoor recreation and sports facility is an earthquake rebuild anchor project and will be the largest venue of its kind in New Zealand.
The large-scale new construction will cater for people of all ages and abilities and includes a 10-lane 50 metre competition pool with seating for 1,000 spectators; a 20m x 25.4m diving pool; extensive aquatic facilities; high-performance sports centre; and a multipurpose indoor court venue with capacity for 2,500 spectators.
Groundworks on the project have commenced and the Benmax team is looking forward to successfully delivering another community project from the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan. The team have already been involved in numerous projects including the Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services Precinct, The Arts Centre of Christchurch, and the Christchurch Town Hall.
