Sports & Leisure
Whether we’re cheering on the All Blacks, Silver Ferns, Breakers, Phoenix or a local sports team, New Zealanders love sports and leisure. In fact, our sporting pursuits and achievements are a big part of our culture – a cornerstone of our heritage and identity. At Holmes Consulting, we’ve got our fair share of sportspeople, many of whom have been lucky enough to lend their structural engineering expertise to some of the country’s most important sports and leisure infrastructure.
Structural engineers designing sports and leisure facilities require a real understanding of the part structure plays in creating atmosphere, combined with the ability to identify and capitalise on opportunities to save time and money. Through decades of experience in the industry, we’ve gained the road miles necessary to deliver design solutions that balance cost efficiencies with the fact that a more compelling stadium environment, for example, will mean a faster and more reliable path to Return on Investment.
We’ve worked on great venues like the Vector Arena, Viaduct Events Centre, and the so-called ‘Cake Tin’ (Westpac Stadium), bringing innovative structural solutions to the table under considerable cost and time pressure. Our designs are underpinned by the trademark Holmes Consulting due diligence and approach to quality, combined with the inventive thinking that makes us the partner of choice for ambitious, challenging projects.
