Orange Theory Stadium





Sports Facilities



The temporary 18,000 seat venue in Addington was built after the original AMI Stadium at Lancaster Park was damaged in the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes.

TM were engaged to complete the seismic systems project.

On Saturday 24 March 2012, when the Crusaders ran onto the field in their first home game following the Christchurch earthquakes significantly damaged the former AMI Stadium, the local project team all felt a huge sense of pride.

In one of the largest single concrete pours ever in Christchurch, 130 trucks delivered concrete for the platforms underneath the North and South Stands and players facilities overnight on 2 February 2012.

Recycling of materials was critical to the project with the lighting towers from Carisbrook in Dunedin, the turf recycled from AMI Stadium and some food and beverage portacoms and seating used during the Rugby World Cup at Eden Park, Auckland.

The facility is flexible enough to be used not just for rugby, but all sporting events, as well as a concert venue with potential to increase its capacity to 25,000 for a major event.
