Architecture – Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerston North

The Central Energy Trust Arena in Palmerston North is New Zealand’s largest multi-purpose sporting complex hosting over 2000 diverse events every year.

CPRW have been engaged to provide architectural design services for a major upgrade of the site.  Stage 1 involved the preparation of a detailed masterplan and the initial stage of enabling works to allow further development and placement of new spectator and indoor sports facilities.

Signature elements of Stage 1 include a new public entrance plaza and spectator bridge into the main outdoor stadium as well as a landscape focus on multi-use overlays.
