From out of concrete and bricks….

And so the character of the new block is emerging, from out of all the project meetings, ideas, plans, concrete and bricks, the third story is now very much evident. Well done to the project team.

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!
