This was one of the first major anchor projects completed in the central city since 2011. This project consisted of paving works on Poplar Lane, Vanguard Square, and Ash Street. The project comprised three different types of natural stone pavers laid to an architecturally designed pattern.
The finishing around the curved planters required specialist shaping of pavers, which was done on site with a specialist cutting station.
The paved surface area comprised 1,600m², and we laid 80,000 pavers by hand.
The area really came to life when it staged Christchurch Fan Zone during the 2017 DHL Lions Series.
