Construction starting on Hornby’s new library, sport and recreation centre

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 7th September 2021

The earthworks have been completed and the site of Hornby’s new library, customer services, recreation and sport centre is ready for the next step - construction.

“I’m pleased to announce that we have appointed Naylor Love Canterbury to build the new multi-use centre and they will start procuring material immediately," says Christchurch City Council Head of Recreation, Sports and Events Nigel Cox.

The pile steel already ordered by the Council will arrive in late October allowing construction on site to begin.

“The earth works contractor HEB Construction, has done a good job preparing the Kyle Park site for the build, which means that Naylor Love Canterbury can hit the ground running and have the facility ready to open at the beginning of 2023,” Mr Cox says.

“Naylor Love Canterbury have a great track record with similar projects in recent years, such as the EA Networks Centre in Ashburton and the Selwyn Aquatic Centre in Rolleston, and high-profile projects that people in Christchurch will recognise like the Ballantynes redevelopment and the Spark Square building.

“Architects Warren and Mahoney have come up with a great design for the centre so it will be exciting to see their vision come to life. I am sure many in the community will watch progress on the building with great interest.”

A range of community and recreational spaces will be accommodated within the 3600 square metre centre, including a library, creative activities room, a lane pool, a learn-to-swim pool, a toddlers’ wet play area, a spa pool and a customer services zone.

An espresso bar and multi-purpose rooms that community groups can use for meetings are also included.

“The south-west of Christchurch is growing at a rapid rate and is particularly popular with families so there is a real need for new community and sport and recreation facilities in this area. The new Hornby centre will bring these facilities together under one roof and will be a fantastic asset for the community,” Mr Cox says.
