University of Canterbury New Education Building

Christchurch NZ

As part of their Campus Transformation and Renewal Program, the University of Canterbury’s Commerce Building has been transformed into a revamped, purpose-built space, designed for contemporary teaching and learning. 

United Scaffolding provided essential height access, formwork and propping services to assist with earthquake remediation, strengthening and refurbishment of the building. Works included demolition of concrete panel facades, replacement of damaged concrete structural components, basement column thickening and new façade/cladding. 

This was a multi-discipline site utilising kwikstage/tube & clip/mobile scaffolds, rack and pinion hoists, shore-loading/propping, rigging and formwork. Work on the project was completed in 2017.
