The largest mall in the South Island
Opus was appointed lead architect for the extension of Westfield Riccarton mall in Christchurch.
The project involved the addition of a second retail level, new café court, carpark decks, separate carpark building, goods delivery area, 320 seat cinema, and upgrade and expansion of existing ground floor facilities.
Construction work needed to be carried out while maintaining mall trading seven days a week. Achieving the tight design and construction programme involved close collaboration between all parties, exemplifying the Team Opus approach.
Westfield staff were based in our office during the design phase and our staff relocated to the site office during construction.
