Apollo Projects was engaged to design and build the new 2,300m² High Performance Sport NZ training facility located next to the Jellie Park Pool Complex in Christchurch. As specialists in the controlled environment area, Apollo were thrilled to be selected for the project by New Zealand’s elite sporting organisation.
The high performance hub includes a gymnasium with cardio and weights areas, an indoor running straight, physiotherapy consulting rooms, medical consulting rooms, showers, recovery areas, an athlete lounge and general amenities, as well as office space for HPSNZ staff. The indoor training area includes a full-size netball court, which has become the new training base for the Canterbury Tactix netball team.
Using highly insulated Kingspan firesafe PIR insulated wall and roof panels during construction ensures the training environment is kept at a consistent temperature from summer through to winter, reducing future heating and cooling costs and ensuring a more consistent training experience for the athletes.
Furthering our commitment to elite sport in New Zealand, Apollo Projects has become a naming rights sponsor of the facility which is now known as the Apollo Projects Centre.
