The three-storey, 1500 square metre Stranges Building was designed by Sheppard and Rout and built by Leighs Construction to meet 188 percent of the new building code.
It consists of three levels, with a central oval core that changes colour at night. This core is crucial to the building’s strength. A unique mezzanine area gives additional space to tenants based on the ground floor. A series of laneways connect to a large courtyard, creating a hospitality hub between the Stranges Building, Bonnington House and the new Glendenning Hill Building.
The company is very fond of the Stranges Building and purchased the original property twice; first in 2004 and then again in 2010. It was sadly destroyed by the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.
