Community & Heritage Building
Being headquartered in Christchurch, Suckling Stringer has seen the city's heritage buildings go through hard times since the earthquakes of 2010-11. The team is enthusiastic at ensuring these buildings are restored, renovated, and improved to the latest standards, so the region's history is not lost.
The Suckling Stringer team has been an integral part of restorations of everything from century-old villas and stately private homes to Nurse Maude's extensive McDougall House renovation, which has been brought back to its former glory whilst remaining faithful to its Category 2 heritage status, as given by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
It's also important for any company to be involved in their community, especially when there's historical significance to a site.
Suckling Stringer has proudly been part of the team which has brought to life community facilities such as the Sumner Community Pool (an earthquake replacement project), the Taylor's Mistake Surf Lifesaving Club rooms, and the brand new Margaret Mahy Playground. Any development like these requires careful community and stakeholder consultation to ensure the final product is something that community remains proud of.
