The Plan

The main Cathedral building will look in essence like it did before the earthquakes. There’s a commitment to retain and reinstate as much of its original design as possible.

Changes

What will be different is that the Cathedral will be reinstated to meet 100% of the Building Code (seismic) with the main Cathedral building base-isolated.

Improvements will be made to such aspects as the heating, sound and lighting systems.

Aims

The updated facilities and new ancillary buildings will be designed to improve the Cathedral’s functionality as a place of worship and increase its value as a community asset and city tourism destination.
