A significant and attractive building has been sensitively and well restored to its former glory. To include earthquake strengthening beyond what was necessary is to be highly commended. Rangiora Bowling Club is an architecturally significant building over 100 years old in the middle of Rangiora. When many of the town’s buildings remained closed, the Club swiftly went to work to bring the building from 21% to 87% of code. Utilising members’ own expertise, extensive refurbishment took place assisted by the foundations of the building revealing workmanship of the highest order around its original construction.
