Commercial gains

  • 1

The Box™ system of post-and-beam construction is all grown up. We’re pleased to announce that our first light-commercial building has been completed in Christchurch.

The clients saw robustness and resilience in the way our dwellings were constructed and wanted to emulate this. The beauty of the exposed beams and stainless-steel cross braces is that any damage from a future shake will be easy to assess and cost-effective to repair. The tenants of the two-storey building in Peterborough Street are a firm of surveyors and an architectural practice. They’re looking forward to the summer months when they can toast the weekend with Friday drinks in the shared internal courtyard. Cheers Christchurch.
