In mid-November, construction professionals and property developers are invited to attend site visits to the Clearwater Quays Apartments, a model building for low-carbon construction in Christchurch. Earlier this year, open days to this mass timber project proved very popular. The free event has been set up specifically for architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and construction and project management professionals.
Four sessions of two hours each are planned for this open day series on 10 & 11th November. Visitors will be guided through leading wood design features on the site. Following the site visit, project team members will highlight specific aspects of the new methods used in the building. The Clearwater Quays Apartments displays the biophilic, seismic and low-carbon benefits of using engineered wood in construction. The 5-storey all-wood building is nearing completion adjacent to the Clearwater Golf Club.
