  • Erecting the steelwork and raising the canopy
  • Delivering an innovative high-quality building in time for the new rugby season

Solutions

“All of the Wellington community was most impressed with the building, both in the design, details and quality of the build. The team on site took ownership, formed partnerships, understood our needs and also applied the dedication, not only to consider the bigger picture, but to explore the details to produce a master piece for our sporting activities in the future.”
