With Hoyts Cinemas as its anchor tenant, EntX is set to be the hub for central city Christchurch entertainment. The development includes 7 state of the art cinemas, a large cinema concourse and ground floor food and beverage hall.
At 20m tall with 100% site coverage early contractor involvement an effective design methodology developed by Kirk Roberts has been essential into delivering this complex project within a short timeframe and construction budget.
The building is constructed from steel frames, precast concrete walls and steel tray deck flooring to ensure fast and efficient construction. Shallow foundations are supported on stone column ground improvement, designed by the Kirk Roberts geotechnical team. Kirk Roberts is responsible for the full BIM management of the project that includes coordination and integration of all project disciplines to ensure an efficient and cost effective construction programme.
This is a fantastic building and we are all very proud to have been involved. Not only has it been a great project for us, it’s really good for the city and is helping to get things up and running again in the heart of Christchurch.
