SELWYN TIMES Tuesday October 25 2016 25 News RECOGNISED: The Warehouse’s distribution centre in Rolleston has won an international award. ​ Award for The Warehouse’s new distribution centre • By Bridget Rutherford GARDEN City Helicopters has regained its contract to run the air ambulance service for Canterbury and the West Coast. The Canterbury District Health Board called for applicants for the contract at the end of last year. Garden City Helicopters has been the provider for the past 20 years. Its new contract for transferring acutely ill patients between hospitals and other South Island locations, as well as the Chatham Islands, began on October 1. It will expire in September 2018. It comes as the Ministry THE Warehouse’s new South Island distribution centre in Rolleston’s Izone business park has won an international award, beating entries from Europe, the Middle East and Asia. A $13 million extension, currently under construction, to the distribution centre was named ‘best industrial project’ category at the Tekla Global BIM (building information modelling) Awards. The award was presented to The Holmes Consulting team which managed the engineering work on the extension. Before work began, the distribution centre was already the South Island’s largest single level building, at 34,000 sq m or the size of six rugby fields. The extension, which will be completed in February, will add a further 15,000 sq m of storage and distribution space, 2000 sq m of extra container canopies, new racking and conveyor systems, and extra yard and parking areas. Holmes Consulting business manager Jeff Matthews (left) said the team relished the opportunity to deliver on a challenging project. “Being recognised internationally is great, we were up against some equally complex projects,” Mr Matthews said. The Holmes Consulting team drew the original centre in two dimensions and then made a three dimensional model of the new part of the facility, to integrate the old and new sections as smoothly as possible. The modelling will also provide information for maintenance and potential future extensions. Air ambulance contract decision of Health and ACC announced they are undertaking a major “rethink” about air ambulance services and how they operate. The National Ambulance Sector Office is looking at developing a new model, which will come into effect after the 12 current provider contracts expire in 2018.
