Fast as the Flash, well almost!

It may not seem to be any different from the outside but look carefully and you can see the walls of each room in the new block coming up. Wow, that’s what I call progress. We will have to keep taking these snapshots so that we don’t miss anything!

Clearing way for the New!

We get gold in exchange for silver…… we were sad to see the old reception and administration block demolished and cleared, but see what we have got in exchange…… the new block is looking better and better each day as the internal walls are coming up.

The Silhouette

After many project meetings involving architects, contractors, builders, designers, cabling specialists etc, the new block is taking shape. The silhouette of the blocks against a new dawn holds a special meaning in that it is the beginning a new era for Sudima Christchurch Airport. The demolition of the old frontage tells us to let go of the old and embrace the new!

Last week we changed the door lock system of 2 wings to the Kaba system, this system interfaces to our Property Management System. The key is cut as we check in guests thus maintaining accuracy in guestroom numbers and validity of the key on the number of nights that the guests are staying for, we are definitely moving forward with the times!

Hotel facade getting a brand new look

Our Reception has moved to a temporary location to make way for the construction crew to get on with giving us a brand new Reception/Lobby area and a new fa├žade.

 In addition, we have a new hotel entrance by way of container at the front entrance of the building – Very Christchurch don’t you think!

We’re all looking forward to seeing our new look in months to come.

Moving Upwards

Things are moving upwards at Sudima Christchurch Airport this week, the exterior walls are being erected - this will be followed by slab foundation. The exterior work comes together rather quickly so we are looking at having an exterior fame complete next month. We are also pleased to advise the work is all on track.

The Pool

As the redevelopment continues the outdoor pool is now closed and filled in. This will make way for a landscaped courtyard (available on completion of redevelopment)
