Christchurch, known as the 'Garden City', is home to our Merivale office. This vibrant city has so much to offer and is in the midst of a colossal rebuild following the 2011 Earthquakes. Fabulous new, structurally sound buildings now dominate the landscape and feature cutting edge architecture, alongside the restoration of its many gorgeous iconic Heritage Buildings. The city has created ‘Re:START’ a shopping mall built from colourful shipping containers in the heart of the city. Christchurch boasts lush green parks, including the Botanic Gardens along the Avon River that runs through the centre of the city.
As the largest city in the South Island Christchurch offers great facilities such as Westfield shopping centres and world renowned Hagley Park. With over thirty golf courses close to the city, Addington Stadium, home to the Mighty Crusaders and Hagley Oval, home to Test Match Cricket, there is also a sporting event to attend. The city will soon see the completion of The Metro Sports Facility, International Convention Centre and a fully covered multipurpose Stadium. It is also home to some of the country's most exclusive Private Schools, Orana Wildlife Park and the Antarctic Centre, Christchurch also enjoys easy access to both the quaint seaside village of Akaroa and Hanmer Springs Thermal Resort.
