Award-winning Papanui Club – a roofing solution with a difference


The architects behind the post-earthquake rebuild of the Papanui Club were looking for something different when it came to roofing and cladding material, and The Architectural Roofing Company helped them find it.
The Papanui Club in Christchurch won a Gold Award (Retail) in the 2017 Commercial Project Awards. Tray Roofing’s Bruce Gibson says the project’s architects, RM Designs Limited, wanted a dark material
with a low gloss, matt finish.

“We knew of an Auckland company, Ambro Metals, which was importing some wonderful Euramax, AnoMax anodised pre-coated aluminium. That offers the dark, matt finish with low reflectivity they were looking for and which, I think, helps the structure make such a bold statement.”

Bruce Gibson says they’re chuffed to have played a part in an award-winning project that will be a local landmark for years to come.
