This existing 18-storey building in central Christchurch is undergoing a change of use, with crowd spaces on the first two levels. The ground floor includes a lobby with reception, a bar and restaurant, general store, and supporting facilities. The first floor includes a dining area, function room, meeting rooms, and supporting facilities. The second floor includes hotel rooms, offices and supporting facilities. Floors three to 17 include hotel rooms, housekeeping, and a mechanical room. The 18th floor includes hotel rooms and a function room.
The building is designed under NZBC Acceptable Solutions C/AS2, C/AS4 and C/AS5 for accommodation, retails and offices. During the design process, discussion and pre-agreement with IHG are necessary in terms of the different fire safety requirements between IHG and NZBC. Therefore additional fire safety features have been included, in addition to the NZBC requirement to satisfy IHG international requirements.
