HNZEC Building interesting facts
The HNZEC building is a state of the art educational facility, equipped with modern classrooms, student and staff areas, and self-study spaces.
The HNZEC building retains the iconic brutalist architectural character on the exterior of the building and is considered a landmark by the citizens of Christchurch.
Many of the original interior fixtures and features including ‘The Kauri dais' on level 4 which is in the former high court chamber has a history that dates to the end of the 1860s when it was built around the judge's bench.
The building has extensive wall panelling of native New Zealand heart rimu, which is considered a national treasure in itself.
The high court hall on the ground floor adjacent to the public entrance has been largely preserved in the original state with its impressive judicial bench.
Some of the former small courtrooms have been converted into classrooms with minimal alteration to keep the integrity of the original building.
Our home in Christchurch is adjacent to the Avon River which meanders through Christchurch city, located in the heart of the CBD area. It is within walking distance to the Christchurch Library, Bus Interchange, a large shopping complex and supermarkets, movie theatres, restaurants, cafes and other conveniences. Students are encouraged to explore the Christchurch CBD as it rebuilds itself to be a modern city that acknowledges its history.
