St Andrews College

St Andrews College identified the need for an additional indoor sports space. This was part of their overall capital works programme which was delayed due to the Canterbury earthquakes.

The project involved the construction of a new 1,880m2 multi-use gymnasium and associated site-works, along with the demolition of an existing building (Erwin House).

SCAPE Tree Houses

The Hawkins South Island Team have taken a lead role in planning, constructing and installing the remarkable Tree Houses sculptural project as part of the SCAPE 7 Public Art Biennial in central Christchurch.

The ten modular structures that function both as trees and houses, were the brainchild of acclaimed New Zealand artist, Julia Morison.  The relocatable sculptures include elements of native plant, timber and light, and are grouped to allow visitors to walk through and explore.

St Martins Community Centre

The St Martins Community Centre opened in November 2016 and was built in just six months. The building is aesthetically pleasing, blending in with the surrounding residential streets. The recycled brick façade is visually stunning and is a key design feature of this building. The site previously hosted the former St Martins Voluntary Library which was demolished after sustaining major damage in the Canterbury earthquakes. 

Wigram Magdala Link Bridge

Aim:

With a growing population around Wigram, infrastructure was needed to ease congestion, improve journey times and to provide motorists and cyclists with a direct link to the Central City. The Wigram Magdala Link consists of an overbridge that joins Wigram Road and Magdala Place, better connecting the south-west of Christchurch with Riccarton and Addington.
