The team working on Christchurch Adventure Park definitely felt the location and the atmosphere of working in a beautiful pine forest made this a completely unique project. A key design feature was ensuring the building blended in with the natural environment. The first three buildings, an office/ticketing facility, a retail shop and a bike storage building - were completed in just three months. The construction of the fourth building - the cafe - took three and half months as a result of the steep sloping site.
