Taiora – QEII Recreation and Sport Centre

Working closely with the Apollo Projects team, we assisted them in showcasing this project from start to finish.

Queen Elizabeth II Park, as originally known, was a multi-use stadium in Christchurch, New Zealand, located in a large park of the same name. The stadium had a capacity of 25,000 people and was built in 1973 to host the 1974 British Commonwealth Games . The stadium suffered some damage in the September 2010 Canterbury earthquake but was able to reopen, only to be damaged beyond repair in February 2011 Christchurch earthquake. The stadium and an adjacent swimming complex were demolished.

The new facilities are now open to the public.
