Client: Wellington Rugby Union
Project Type: Recreational
Project Timeframe: 2003
Architects: Hunt Davies Tennant
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.
