This social services hub has been developed by the Selwyn District Council as a strategic solution to service one of New Zealand’s fastest growing regions around Rolleston.
The facility provides a flexible shell and innovative common areas to attract key tenants including Canterbury DHB, a radiology clinic, maternity ward, dental clinic, general practitioners’ office, and associated health services to be closer to their users living in the area.
The building has been elegantly modulated given its depth and its horizontal form, which has been broken down using three sloping roof forms. The detailing is crisp and well executed. Teamwork was clearly apparent, and the contract was well managed with a mature approach to Covid. The team showed agility and used their down time well. Overall, this was an excellent project.
