A major and high profile project built by C. Lund & Son Ltd. in Christchurch. The design and construction phases were fast tracked to achieve a final completion date that was predetermined by the Casino Control Authority in order that a license could be issued to the owner. It was the first casino to be built in New Zealand under the Casino Control Act 1990 and needed absolute cooperation and commitment from the builder and the consultant team to ensure all casino requirements, many of which were unknown at the commencement of the project, were incorporated.
The project was completed successfully, both programme and budget objectives were achieved. A high standard of architectural finish was demanded. It was provided by the design consultants led by Warren & Mahoney Ltd and C. Lund & Son Ltd as building contractors.
