Green growth - Club Tower
Named after the historic Canterbury Club, the new Club Tower looms 13 levels above the city reaching a maximum height of 40 metres. The levels are split into three carparking levels and 10 levels of retail and office space with views across to the alps..
There has been a dearth of new A grade office development in Christchurch, and Club Tower is cited to be the first such development in two decades. It was also the first building in the South Island to achieve a 5 star green rating.
In keeping with the design plan of green systems, interior and exterior paint selections were focused on low or no VOC Resene Environmental Choice approved paints tinted to Resene Alabaster (blackened white). Paint finishes included Resene Broadwall Waterborne Wallboard Sealer and Resene Zylone Sheen VOC Free on plasterboard, Resene Enamacryl on selected plasterboard areas and timber joinery and Resene X-200 waterproofing membrane on the exterior.
The nod to nature didn’t end there. Contractors were also actively encouraged to minimise their onsite waste, with the Resene WashWise system installed to take care of the wash water from paint application tools and the Resene PaintWise paint and paint packaging recovery system used to take care of the leftover paint and empty paint containers.
And with on-site recycling and energy saving initiatives, the environmental benefits continue to add up.
