Christchurch’s world-class gathering place deserves world-class solutions. When Te Pae Christchurch needed roof access and service walkways, we knew that we could create solutions that would allow easy and safe solutions to keep the centre operating at its best.

Integral to this project (like all of our projects) was the need to keep the centre’s service people safe. A huge facility like this has a lot of moving parts, many roof level changes that need to be safely navigated, and access to fan exhausts, skylights, roof mounted plants, and gutters and downpipes that demand careful attention.

We also had to protect the roof itself, so developed systems that would ensure all loads were transferred safely back to the purlins. If you check out the photos, you’ll see that our roof rails extend to reach two purlins at a time – transferring the load back through the building structure, rather than fixing down through the roof sheeting.

The huge convention centre roof received a suite of roof access, service walkways, edge protection handrails and gutter guards, with the walkways and handrails powdercoated to ensure they matched the rest of the building and maintained a clean, professional appearance. In addition, the trafficable FRP gutter guards can be removed to clean up any debris that happens to collect – something that’ll make things easy for ongoing inspections and maintenance.

Thanks to Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre for allowing us to be a part of the process, and doing our part to protect your team with a seamless, stunning solution.
