Construction underway for Christchurch Metro Sports Facility

World-class Aquatic & Leisure Facility expected to open early 2022 in Central City.

It's finally here

The Metro Sports Facility is set to be New Zealand's Largest Leisure and sports recreation facility. The $300 million central city project is being built by CPB Contractors and will attract thousands of people into the city for sporting events, competitive swimming and daily leisure for the all public.

The project has finally kicked off with the first extensive concrete pour last week. About 1,100 cubic metres of concrete from 200 trucks was poured on site. Our team of Civil Formworkers are underway and busy forming concrete, steel tying and getting the Metro Sports 'foundation base' ready.

Once the foundation has been completed, people travelling along Moorhouse Avenue will start  to see structural steel being erected forming the skeleton of this grand building in the early months of 2020. 

What will we find inside the Metro Sports Facility?

  • 10-lane competition swimming pool
  • Learn to swim school
  • Five Hydro slides
  • Spa/sauna/steam room
  • Diving pool
  • Indoor sports courts 
  • Spectator stadium
  • Gym/weights facility
  • Group fitness studios
  • Aquatic Sensory spaces
  • Competitive sports training centre
  • Cafe and food and beverage facilities 
  • 500 onsite parking
