A retail upgrade

Christchurch’s Priority Projects has now completed full earthquake strengthening to the buildings located at Walker Court, with the tenants remaining operational throughout the process.


The retail outlet, home to Burnsco and Paramount Pools, is located at 75 Blenheim Road and made up of four units, across single and double levels.

The Canterbury fit-out, design-build and project management company has upgraded the buildings to 100 percent of the NBS code, which includes substantial new structural steel, upgrade of accessible facilities, new roof and fire protection systems.

Project Manager Kim Lowry says this was a complex project, but everything was completed on time with the anchor tenants remaining operational throughout and efforts made to minimise the effect on their trading.

They are now seeking tenants for two lovely vacant units on the same site.

Priority Projects has undertaken some major concept-to-completion strengthening work since the Canterbury earthquakes, namely Go Bus & Flip Out headquarters at 230 Maces Road, Chester Street Apartments, Harcourts Division Street in Riccarton, and significant residential rebuilds for existing clients.

Since 2009, Director Steve Brownie and the team have been offering comprehensive project management of commercial fit-outs, design-builds, feasibility studies, earthquake repairs, rebuilds and new construction projects, that all stick to the core values of priority service, quality, value and results.
