ABOUTFounded in 1987, the longstanding Christchurch Cathedral College added a new building to their facilities. The multi storey timber structure will house a new administration office, reception, staff offices and classroom.
The building was designed using industry leading resilient and sustainable systems, with CLT timber used throughout. Careful consideration was taken in choosing the design elements - placing importance on environmentally conscious solutions and post seismic event operation.
Tectonus units are easily fitted in the profile of the rocking shearwalls and can be left exposed as part of the interior design (or covered if required). Each Tectonus device is performance tested to ensure it is to correct specification and is serial plated for tracing.
