Christchurch Art Gallery Landscape Exterior 2

Christchurch Art Gallery

THE REAL WORK OF ART WAS THE PLANNING

The largest civic project completed at the time since the town hall.

A unique and treasured facility featuring a bespoke sculpture wall comprising 2020 individual panes of mosaic glass.

Caleb Ballin led the tender evaluation and contract award process on this project. He worked on site for 2.5 years from November 2000 co-ordinating the design and construction teams.

Not only was the build process technical and challenging, Caleb had to progressively realise some $1 million of targeted savings throughout the project to deliver the required budget.

Caleb was awarded a life membership at the galley by Jenny Harper in 2006 for his services on the project.

Caleb is passionate about the gallery and has vast experience to assist in bringing it back to its former glory.

One of New Zealand’s most iconic structures, this was the largest civic project completed in the last 23 years. Cequent Managing Director Caleb Ballin led the tender evaluation and contract award process on this project. He worked on site for 2.5 years from November 2000 co-ordinating the design and construction teams.
