Mak’s Camera Centre

Hanham & Philp Contractors Ltd were delighted to be involved with the rebuild of this iconic Christchurch photography outlet, following the Canterbury earthquakes.

The project encompassed a turn key ground floor retail space, with separate leasable office space above. All built on a small confined site, surrounded by numerous, operating retail spaces in Colombo St.

The structure encompassed a ribraft floor slab on gravel raft, supporting a primarily timber framed two level structure.  


Rebuild of a retail store complete with an open office space above (182m2).
