The power of community is amazing. Generous Canterbrians answered the call and raised a whopping $3.2 million for a future-proofed rooftop helipad and the enhancements of the children’s facilities at Christchurch Hospital Hagley.
A key feature of this upgrade was the Matatiki Hub, a large indoor play area adjacent to the children’s wards on Level 7. Our Cook Brothers team were extremely proud to be involved in this project for our Christchurch Whanau alongside RCP, Architectus, RLB, WSP, Beca and Fire Connect.
The 120m² Play Space is complete with spaces to explore, including an aquarium, interactive projection facility, gaming consol, slide, tunnels and even a magical fairy tree. To top it off a shiny new Radio Lollipop studio was constructed along with social spaces for the older kids. Funded by the Christchurch based Health Charity ‘The Maia Foundation’ this facility was designed to brighten up the lives of the patients and there families who are obviously going through a tough time. It’s not every day we get the chance to be involved in such a unique project, and the entire project team are really proud of the end result.
