5 Norwich Quay, Lyttelton
Architecture: Nott Architects
Construction: Gary Mason Construction
Formerly the offices of the Lyttelton Harbour Board, this 140-year old building was badly damaged after the Canterbury earthquakes. Having lost a number of heritage buildings in Lyttelton, including the upper storey of this building, the owners, community and council were eager to retain the remaining brick façade. Structex led the way in developing a scheme to refurbish and strengthen the building as well as securing a grant for the owner to retain the heritage elements.
