Re:START Christchurch

Following the loss of Christchurch’s Cashel Street Mall in the major earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, the Re:START project was set up in the heart of the city to quickly re-establish business activity around the inner core of the retail and hospitality precinct. Shipping container units were used to establish a versatile shopping precinct completely in tune with Christchurch’s need for a revitalised, modern construction aesthetic.

Holmes Fire provided fire engineering services on the project including justification of reduced boundary separation distances required by the Acceptable Solution. This closer placing of the containers optimised the space available and met the commercial and construction requirements.
