‘It is a measure of what has been achieved at Jade Stadium that the West Stand can be confidently placed alongside the major public buildings that were built in Christchurch during the 1970s.'
Ian Lochead Architecture New Zealand, July/August 2002
The South and West Stands complete stage one of a masterplan for the redevelopment of Jade Stadium in which four discrete but interlinked quadrant components are being progressively incorporated into the existing infrastructure.
The completed Stage 1 comprises the stand-alone South Stand of 6,750 seats and West Stand with 16,000 seats, 30 corporate boxes and lounge facilities.
The stands are arranged around a continuous public concourse 5 metres above ground level, one of the key design decisions for the project, which separates public circulation from that of the players, officials and stadium staff at ground level.
A second key decision was the adoption of radial precast concrete walls, in preference to column and beam frames, and the related three tiered cross section which provided the maximum amount of covered seating within the restricted budget.
Public circulation upwards from the concourse is by freestanding, steel mesh enclosed, ramps and stair towers with elevators integrated at each end of the main stand.
