PROJECT TYPE: COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS

USE: RECREATIONAL

LOCATION: RUGBY LEAGUE PARK, WELLINGTON

CLIENT: WELLINGTON RUGBY UNION

ARCHITECTS: HUNT DAVIES TENNANT

PROJECT TIMEFRAME: 2003

In 2003, LT McGuinness completed the Hurricanes’ training base at Rugby League Park in Newtown, Wellington. It was a negotiated job in which the interior of the old grandstand was completely refurbished to include new team amenities such as showers, changing rooms and first aid facilities.

A new building to the south houses a gym, plunge pools, physio and medical facilities and corporate offices, and the surrounds have been extensively landscaped and replanted.

The state-of-the-art training facilities are well used by professional rugby teams including the Hurricanes, Wellington Lions, overseas teams and All Blacks.
