Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre

After four years of construction, Christchurch’s $450 million (NZD) Convention Centre, Te Pae has opened its doors.

While the official public opening has been postponed due to covid-19 restrictions, special guests and media were given an insight to the incredible facility opening ceremony in December.

Te Pae looks out over the Otakaro Avon River promenade, right in the heart of Christchurch’s CBD. The stunning river themed exterior displays 43,000 tiles, together with the shape of the windows, represent Canterbury’s braided river systems.

A world–class venue with 28,000m2 of highly flexible, adaptable space. The 1400-seat auditorium has a 9-metre by 18m screen and can be divided into two 700 seat venues. 24 meeting rooms with a capacity range of 50 – 1,500. A beautiful banquet space, seating 1,000 and overlooking the Otakaro Avon River. The latest technology is interwoven into every aspect of Te Pae’s design.

CPB Contractors engaged VAE Group to undertake the mechanical services on Te Pae Christchurch.
