New clubrooms for those ‘In it for life’

Christchurch newspaper, The Press, is highlighting the changing face of Christchurch with spotlights on some of the latest buildings popping up around the city.

Today the Sumner Surf Life Saving Club featured sporting a sleek wooden exterior and curved roof, resembling rolling waves.

Lifetime surf life saving supporter David Hill of Wilson and Hill Architects designed the building,  and it was built by Hawkins construction.

The completion of the Sumner Surf Life Saving Club is music to the ears of our very own Arie Moore, chairman of the Lyall Bay Surf Life Saving Club in Wellington.

“The new clubhouse at Sumner shows the excellent work that is being done at a number of clubs around the country as they grapple with the issue of an aging asset base which will require replacement in the near future. It is a great result and timely as we finalise preparation for construction of a new clubhouse at Lyall Bay”

This will be an interesting area to watch as a number of innovative projects have started.
