Kathmandu International HQ
Christchurch, New Zealand
Calibre provided a design solution which ensured the quick and safe construction of this commercial building, minimise foundation and superstructure costs, and still achieve outstanding structural performance as well as a 5-Star Green rating.
Located in the centre of the city’s innovation precinct, the three‐storey headquarters became a state-of-the-art, purpose-built building. Having provided enhanced facilities for staff in the company’s product design, systems and online development teams, the building housed over 150 Kathmandu team members.
The building was constructed with composite steel decks, beams and columns and supported laterally by precast concrete wall panels.

The building consent documentation that Calibre have provided has been readily accepted by Council with minimal issues, and the construction documentation has been respected by the construction teams delivering the projects. We look forward to many more projects with the Calibre team.
