They broke the existing

Concern

over

quarry

truck

numbers

• By Emily O’Connell

ONE-HUNDRED-and-twenty-five

truck movements every hour.

That’s what Weedons and

Templeton residents may face if the

proposed quarry near their areas goes

ahead.

Fulton Hogan says the quarry,

which will be on a 170ha section

of land on Dawsons, Curraghs and

Jones Rds, will be there for up to 40

years.

The company told Western News it

is anticipating 1500 truck movements

in or out of the site a day.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday is concerned

about the large number of trucks on

roads which are already busy.

“Fifteen hundred will go past a

specific point everyday over a 12-

hour period. Now that’s 125 truck

movements per hour,” he said.

Fulton Hogan said the time and

days the quarry would be open

was part of its resource consent

application, which the company won’t

divulge yet.

from the editor’s desk

I’VE SEEN some intriguing sporting

records over the years, but the one we

have on page 1 would be among the most

remarkable.

Twin brothers going toe-to-toe, not in

the boxing ring, but in the triple jump.

Nant and Nont Prachuabmoh beat each other’s newly set

record at Christ’s College in two jumps before landing incredibly

at the same distance on their third.

The twins are competitive in many aspects, and finishing

equal was not the ideal outcome for either.

The fight to stop the planned Fulton Hogan quarry near

Templeton is going to get hot (see page 1).

The residents’ group looks well organised and has a leader at

its helm. This will be a dog fight to the end, I suspect.

Intersection review due in May

• By Julia Evans

THE OUTCOME of an

independent review of the

Glandovey and Idris Rds

intersection may be known in

May.

City council manager

planning and delivery transport

Lynette Ellis said a report on the

intersection will be sent back

to the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board.

“The results and analysis

of the work undertaken will

be collated into a report to

the community board. This

is expected to be delivered in

May,” she said.

Ms Ellis said a detailed time

line for the work could not

be given as it was being done

independently not in house by

the city council.

Last week, Nor’West News

reported the city council

had appointed a consultant

to “provide an independent

review/opinion” of the

intersection.

It is part of an ongoing saga

between the city council,

community board, and the

Glandovey, Idris and Straven

Residents’ Association,

which has been trying to

improve pedestrian and

cyclist safety in the area.

The association also wants

restrictions on heavy trucks.

As well as a review, the city

council has commissioned

traffic modelling to forecast

the effect of any changes to the

intersection and restrictions

including some proposed for

heavy vehicles could have on

the wider network and a vehicle

count.

“The additional tube and

camera traffic counts has been

completed and we are awaiting

the information from the

contractor,” Ms Ellis said.

A camera has also been

installed above the intersection

to record traffic “turning

motion” after the residents

found heavy vehicles could

not navigate the intersection

without cutting into other

lanes.

spokesman James Wilding

said the city council had

undertaken some remedial

work by widening the cycleway,

realigning the angle and

moving two vehicle lanes by

about a metre and repainting

cycle lane symbols.

He said the group “thanked”

the city council for that work,

which it did “in advance” of

commissioning the current

report.

Riccarton Rd work to restart

• By Emily O’Connell

ROAD WORKS on Riccarton

Rd could be finished in May.

Riccarton Ward city

councillor Vicki Buck has said

the “latest thinking” was for the

main resurfacing work between

Harakeke and Matipo Sts to be

completed in April and May.

Cr Buck said “ground

investigations, minor kerb

work and the

remaining

underground

pipe work is

proposed to

begin in mid-

March with two

Vicki Buck

weeks of night

works.”

But city

council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas isn’t

able to confirm a time frame

until staff meet again with

stakeholders this week.

“The project team is working

with a contractor to ensure

impacts are minimised and time

frames reduced,” Mr Thomas

said.

Road works have been under

way on Riccarton Rd since

September 2016 to replace

earthquake-damaged water

pipes and implement a bus

priority scheme.

ONGOING: Work will soon start on resurfacing Riccarton Rd

between Harakeke and Matipo Sts and is set to be completed

by April and May.

The work was put on hold

during the Christmas period to

give businesses some respite.

Following a meeting last week,

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board is now

going to recommend to the city

council that stages three and

four of the bus priority scheme

and three waters upgrade

continue as combined projects

until the end of construction.

Twin brothers

•From page 1

Nant then stepped up again.

He took first place back with

another record-breaking leap,

but that was only for a few moments.

Not to be outdone, Nont

out did his brother on his second

attempt and it was all on for the

third and final attempts.

The boys stepped up for the

final jump each. A jump that

would see one of them labelled

school champion.

Teacher Matt Thatcher was

measuring the jumps. He said

he began to laugh when he saw

the numbers for the third jump.

They were identical – 10.84m.

“Everyone clicked and was

blown away. Some couldn’t believe

it,” he said.

But Mr Thatcher said the two

boys were not pleased with the

outcome. “Nant and Nont did

not seem too happy to be tied.”

Nont said he and his brother

are particularly competitive, especially

during school athletics.

The triple jump wasn’t the only

record broken, three others fell,

including one by year 10 student

Sam Idiens who broke his own

record for the under-14 3000m.

Murray meets his match at CBHS

• By Julia Evans

A 17-YEAR-OLD Christchurch

Boys’ High student has

managed to do what the world’s

best rowers could not.

He beat Eric Murray.

Although it wasn’t on the

water, year 12 student Tom

Woelders took on the double

Olympic gold medallist and

four-time world champion

in a head-to-head erg race on

Thursday night.

Before the short and fast

500m race on their rowing

machines, Tom and Murray had

a quick warm up.

The race was over in just over

1min.

But when he looked down to

see his time, Tom said he was

surprised he’d rowed more

than three seconds faster that

Murray.

He clocked 1min 19.8sec,

while Murray lost by more

than three seconds with 1min

23.2sec.

CBHS rowing coach Ricardo

De Souza said Tom was selected

because he had the best erg time

in the school.

Mr De Souza said after

beating Murray it’s clear Tom

has a bright rowing future

ahead of him.

His good form is just in time

for the Maadi Cup, which

begins on March 19 at Lake

Ruataniwha, Twizel.

Mr De Souza said he never

doubted Tom could win.

“I always had my money on

Tom. Eric’s been out of rowing

for a while now. Where Tom’s

just finishing up the end of

his season. He’s been on the

water non-stop for the last six

months,” he said.

Tom he said he wasn’t too

phased by the calibre of his

competitor. But it was a “great”

experience going up against the

Olympian.

“It was a really good time. He

gave me a few pointers before

the race,” Tom said.

Although he wasn’t certain

he could beat him, it was a great

feeling looking down at the erg

and seeing his time was more

than three seconds faster than

Murray’s.

But beating Murray hasn’t

His mind is firmly on the

next big competition, which

will be the last chance he has to

take out the Maadi Cup with

CBHS before he finishes

school.

“We’re just getting ready for

Maadi now,” he said.

After the race, Murray helped

the school name the two new

Laszlo boats in its fleet, which

the rowers will be taking to

Twizel.

Quarry truck

residents

•From page 1

Mr Kilday said the company

had “completely thrown their

neighbourhood and community

into chaos.”

A Fulton Hogan spokesman

said if resource consent is

granted for the quarry “it

will not operate until new

access roads have been built to

accommodate the increase in

truck movements.”

He said the company was

aware of the community’s

concerns about more truck

movements.

“We intend to work

collaboratively with the

community and local authorities

to position our quarry entrance

so that the majority of truck

movements will access and exit

via State Highway 1, rather than

using local roads,” he said.

‘So much to enjoy’

Oak

Development

Trust manager

Carol Renouf

writes about

what the

Riccarton

community

has to be grateful for

I SAT with my grandchildren

at Sparks in the Park a few

weeks ago, enthralled watching

the magnificent fireworks

display while listening to

the Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra playing the 1812

Overture.

A free gift from the city to the

people of the city. During the hot

summer holiday days, I visited a

number of the parks of our city,

with trees that provided much

needed shade, a playground and

swimming pool, clean and well

maintained. The New Brighton

play area is awesome, a credit to

the designers.

I asked those who gathered at

the Common Ground Café on

Rattray St what they appreciated

and are proud of in Riccarton.

They named Deans Bush, the

community garden and the

provision of a good bus system

as assets they enjoyed.

SUCCESS: Oak Development Trust manager Carol Renouf

says the Riccarton community is proud of its public garden.

Their experience had been of

people being welcoming, friendly

and supportive of each other.

The diversity of cultures was appreciated.

The group expressed a

pride in the way our community

and our city has been resilient as

we have gone through much.

There is so much to enjoy,

celebrate and explore in this

city. I often feel this city does

not disappoint. So much to be

grateful and thankful for. Yet

these things just don’t happen by

accident.

People work hard often behind

the scenes to make them a reality.

I wonder this week whether

we should take time out of our

schedule to thank someone

who works to make our city the

great place it is. It could be those

who keep our swimming pools

clean in our parks or the lawns

mowed. Or those who collect

our rubbish. It could be a letter

of thanks to our children’s teachers

at school or pre-school.

Let’s take up the challenge of

being grateful to someone that

gives to generously serve our city

this week.

Two weeks ago Western

Halswell Pharmacy owner

Karen Frater’s push for a

pedestrian crossing on

Ensign St. Readers respond

Anna Marie – I am 100 per

cent in a agreement for the need

of a controlled pedestrian crossing

in Ensign St. Even

more now that there

other side of the road.

I have seen a few near

misses with children

rushing across to the

pharmacy.It is also

hard for elderly. Too many motorists

speed along Ensign St.

Ally Syme – Yes I think

there should be a pedestrian

crossing on Ensign St, especially

when the new shopping centre

opens. Another thing that needs

do not stop at stop signs. I often

see people in cars going through

the stop signs on Brigham Drive

and Patterson Tce, and Lancewood

Drive onto Dunbars Rd,

also Lillian St onto Halswell Rd.

Tony Bishop – The idea of a

crossing outside the pharmacy is

great, especially with the rebuild

of the shopping area.

The other major problem

we have with Ensign

St is the sheer speed

of some of the traffic.

Early last year the city

council and a couple of

other people came and

visited Ensign St to see

for themselves the problem we

are having with traffic speed.

In their wisdom, they decided

that the way to slow the traffic

down was to paint white lines

Volunteer Jack’s life of league,

Hornby Panthers’

Jack Newson was

named top male

volunteer at the

recent New Zealand

Rugby League

Awards. Andrew

King speaks to the

ageless 76-year-old

So Jack, you have a longstanding

tie with the Hornby

Panthers, 66 years and

counting. What got you into

league?

When I was growing up every

young kid around the country

wanted to be an All Black. But

we were from Hornby and we

wanted to be Kiwis. That was

the difference, we are a staunch

rugby league area. League

dominated and I still love the

game right up to today. It has

been my life.

Now you volunteer for the

club and was named top male

volunteer of the year by NZRL.

Are there more people helping

out nowadays or less?

There is plenty of people who

help out with the club and we

have an excellent committee who

gets a lot of work done. I just help

out when I can and I don’t live

far away. I go over there every

week.

I like to go to the schoolboys’

prize giving. I love watching the

younger kids coming through.

Gave up coaching but I really

like watching them develop

their skills. There is a lot of good

coaches there now, that have

passed me.

I used to coach 14s take them

to 15s then to 16s and then drop

back down and do it all over

again.

So what keeps you coming

back to help out?

It is part of my life. My love of

the club, the sport all rolls into

one. It is a major part of my life.

When my boys finished playing I

was a bit lost. I had been

flat tack chasing teams here

there everywhere then it just

stopped. Now grand kids are

coming through so it all started

again.

Did you play right through

the grades?

I did. Started off with

schoolboys stuff. Back in those

days, it was done on weights

rather than ages. There was an

old fish scale hung from a tree

and you all lined up one by one

we would hang on it and get put

in a team. We would try fast

a bit to get into a lower grade

(laughing). And I continued

through to the senior’s grade.

Premiers got brought in later. I

played in the second row, then

prop later on.

Who are some of the notable

guys you played alongside?

I played with some good

players but the standouts were

John Bray, who played for the

Kiwis in 1964, Ian Drayton,

who played in the same team,

Brian Langton, who played for

CHARGER: Jack Newson

playing in the masters grade

in 2003 for Hornby.

Canterbury, and I was coached

by the legendary Mel Cooke in

open grade senior football.

Cooke must have been an

inspiration?

Oh, he was terrific. He could

bring the best out of you. He

would lay it on the line what he

wanted to be done, but he would

encourage you to play better. He

was an inspiration to us all and

captained the Kiwis for many

years.

Did you ever get selected for

higher honours?

I made the Kiwis masters

squad in 2008 in the Gold Coast

and the last time was 2013. They

were always good trips. It is

never really serious, especially

at our age. I captained them at

AMI Stadium against Australia.

We won twice and drew once

and the rest we lost. I played for

the Canterbury Maori squad a

few times.

You still play now. What that

like?

I am still playing masters for

Hornby, but we are struggling for

players this year. I could play for

the Shirley Hawks, they said they

have room for me. But I would

rather play for Hornby. We have

been going 16 years straight but

a few numbers dropping away

now.

That is incredible. So your

whole family has been involved

with the club as well in some

way?

Yes my daughter Mataara, 50,

played Hornby in the women’s

team. Sam, 48, played in the

lower grades before he decided to

play basketball instead. John, 47,

played right through the grades

and was selected in the 1989

Junior Kiwis who toured Papua

New Guinea. Hemi, 45, was the

same and was also selected in the

1990 Junior Kiwis and played for

the New Zealand Maori before

playing in the south of France for

a while. Lincoln, 43, also played

through the grades and made

the Canterbury and Canterbury

Maori sides. Hemi and Lincoln

also boxed at the same time and

both won Golden Gloves titles.

league and more rugby league

HONOURED: Jack Newson was named male volunteer of the

year by New Zealand Rugby League after spending 66 years

with the Hornby Panthers. (Above) – His first Hornby side in

1952 (back right).

Plus I have 12 grand kids and

about three of them have played

for Hornby too.

I’d imagine you get down the

clubrooms for a few quiet ones?

I still get down every Friday

night. I don’t stay as late as I used

to. Back in the day, there used to

be complaints that we had left

the lights on from guys going to

work, but we would still be there

getting a few in.

You must have some really

good stories from those days?

Grand finals were the

biggest event we had. There is

no comparison compared to

nowadays. In the clubrooms

you couldn’t move. And back

then we had a huge rivalry with

Halswell, the Hornets, and the

hatred between the spectators

was amazing. One grand final

in the mid to late 80s we hired

a helicopter to land on the No

2 field at the Addington Show

Grounds (now AMI Stadium)

and a kid in a Hornets suit

jumped out. We had a guy in a

spray can outfit with ‘Panthers’

on it and a fire extinguisher who

hunted the Hornet done and

‘killed it’. Then some pallbearers

come on to the field, put it in

a coffin and went to take it off

the field. Well some Halswell

fans didn’t like this and a group

dressed up as clowns came on

the field and started to beat up

the pallbearers. A full riot looked

like it was going to break out but

the Hornby cheerleaders raced

‘I played with some good players but the standouts

were John Bray, who played for the Kiwis in 1964,

Ian Drayton, who played in the same team, Brian

Langton, who played for Canterbury, and I was

coached by the legendary Mel Cooke in open grade

senior football’ – Jack Newson

on and started to hit the clowns

with their pom-poms and it

fizzled out.

Now you have lived on the

same section all your life.

Tell me about that?

Yeah, we have lived in the

same section since I was born in

1942. It is not the same house,

we knocked the old one down in

1969 and built the one we are in

now in 1970. The old one didn’t

have running hot water and

the toilet was outside and the

bath was in the wash house also

outside. Every week a night man

used to come empty the toilet

for us.

My dad, unfortunately, died

when I was three so mum raised

me by herself.

It must have been tough

losing your dad when you were

so young?

Yes it was. He died from

injuries he got in World War 1 in

1945, so quite a long time after

he got back in 1918. He had some

form of blood poisoning. But I

was actually adopted. My father’s

sister, who is now my mother

took me in from birth and raised

me as her own and then my

dad, Jim Newson, adopted me

as well. I was one of 12. There is

only me and my brother, Murray

Tirikatene, left. I still see him

and other parts of that side of my

family.

Oh wow. So any particular

reason why have you never

moved from that section?

There was and still is no need

to. All my work was here. I

worked at the freezing works as a

slaughter man on the chain over

the back fence. My mum was

here.

Then I had my family and we

all lived here with my mum so

we built a sleep out out back

for her. She lived with us the

whole time. I mean I worked

the odd job out of town. I was

a boilermaker by trade and the

freezing works was seasonal so I

went out of town every now and

again.

What is your best memory in

the Islington house?

Probably when the kids were

young running around the

house, making noise and getting

into mischief. At the time it was

not so good. But it was the first

thing you missed when you were

away.

Centuries old folk

remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is none other than the

popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS &

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and

H around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the

blood thickens it cannot pass as easily

and quickly through the blood vessels and

capillaries. This poor blood flow

would reduce cellular health by

limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the

cells. To prevent cell damage the

body naturally increases blood

pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and

heart. Having ACV and H with

meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also

contributes to a feeling of greater

well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and

more easily through the blood

vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with

numerous Health attributes.

ACV SUPPORTS

• Healthy digestion, assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes

• Energy – Vitality – Endurance

• Elimination of viruses, bacteria, fungus & parasites

• Powerful antioxidant

• Cardiovascular health, blood flow & healthy blood pressure

• Diabetes – improves insulin sensitivity

• Arthritis & joint support • Longevity & improved health

• Settles the stomach & reduces reflux

• Weight Loss

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the bodyGood health

starts with good digestion and assimilation

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy digestion

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good

health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any

toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is

produced in the traditional way and results

are likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

SENIOR LIVING

What’s happening

at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village?

It’s been a busy few years for The

Golden Healthcare Group with their latest

development of Lady Wigram Retirement

Village on Kittyhawk Road. The first villas

were occupied in August 2015 and now 101

villas are completed.

In December, the club house opened

which provides a bowling green, hair

dressing salon, restaurant and bar, billiard

room, movie theatre and library. The Club

House has all the trimmings, including 16

one and two bedrooms Apartments. The

next stage will also include a swimming

pool, gym and a further 14 Apartments.

When speaking with one of their

residents about how he feels about the new

Club house, Mr Havill said “everyone is

so excited about it opening, we have all

been watching it very closely’. Mr Havill is

fascinated as to how the fountain works.

He has lived in the village for the past

few years, enjoying his new life style and

making friends. He has also picked up new

hobbies including learning to play mahjong,

“I love it, I had never played in my life”. Mr

Havill owned his own home for 44 years

and in that time he maintained the house,

painted it, did this... did that. “We don’t

have to do that anymore, this is my place for

the moment. Every villa is different, even

though they look the same. But you make it

your own”. One thing Mr Havill likes at this

age is “the gates shut at night, we can get in

but no one else can and that is an additional

sense of security for us”.

Owner John Tooby says “our residents

are very involved in the continuing

development of the village, they share our

pride in making this a great place to live. It’s

a real community and it continues to grow”.

How’s your LIVER doing?

Your liver affects how you feel, your

mood, hormones, energy and overall

health. In fact it carries out over 500 crucial

functions that are vital to maintain good

health. If your liver is under-performing as

is the case for most of us, it means that the

body has more toxins that could be setting

the stage for disease. Disease can normally

only survive if the environment is suitable.

A well performing body will generally have

a much better chance of staying healthy.

Some symptoms of an underperforming

liver can be: Fatigue, weakness, trouble

concentrating, confusion, dark urine, dark

circles under the eyes, yellow discoloration

of the whites of the eyes, bloating and gas,

dry and dark patches on the neck and

under arms, bruising easily, constipation,

skin spots and rashes, eczema, psoriasis,

hormonal problems, moody and many

more.

The liver is the only organ in the body that

can regenerate itself if the right conditions

are met. In most cases the liver function can

be improved relatively easily with diet and

lifestyle changes and nutritional support.

Natural herbal extracts like milk thistle,

dandelion, globe artichoke, burdock, grape

seed and turmeric have been shown to be

very effective at supporting detoxification,

digestion and liver function. These herbs

are food for the liver and body. They

provide the building blocks to allow the

liver to regenerate healthy cells. All these

ingredients are available in a high potency

one-a-day vegie capsule.

Fresh vegetable juices are an excellent way

to provide the body with easily absorbed

nutrients. They also help the liver detox the

body and support its regeneration.

Certain strains of probiotics have been

shown to support healthy digestion, liver

function and much more. A one-a-day

comprehensive high potency probiotic

is highly recommended to support good

health.

Apple cider vinegar as well as being highly

nutritious contains beneficial enzymes that

support healthy digestion, liver function

and absorption of nutrients.

As your liver function improves you will

notice increased energy, clearer skin, less

hormonal problems, better digestion, and

a positive mood and sharper mind just to

name a few.

Further detailed information on

how to support your liver and general

health is available from the Natural

Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, phone 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Highly effective

treatment brings

Special offer - one treatment for

arthritis at half price for the first 10 people

who make an appointment before april 6.

‘amazing’ results

for arthritis patient

Anyone that suffers from arthritis will know the pain, discomfort

and sheer inconvenience this can cause in day-to-day life.

However, thanks to a highly effective treatment

offered by Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao,

they can get fast, and very often immediate relief.

Lan developed the treatment, known as

‘acupuncture without needles’, which she describes

as being similar to reflexology in that the problem

area on the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

One client who was thrilled with the results of

this treatment, is Corinna Cornelius. Corinna was

having problems with her right hand after she overused

it following an injury to her left hand and it

became arthritic.

“I couldn’t close my hand up and make a fist, and

it was also very painful, especially if I knocked it.

This also made it very difficult to do everyday things

like picking up a cup of tea or cleaning my teeth,”

Corinna said.

After hearing about Lan’s treatment from a friend,

Corinna decided to give it a try, and was thrilled

with the results.

“The difference after one treatment was amazing.

My hand wasn’t painful and I could make a fist.”

A further six treatments followed, and Corinna

said while her hand was still slightly stiff, it was

improving every day and things were back to

normal. Following a holiday in Australia, she was

due to go back to Lan for a check-up, but didn’t

think she would need any further treatment.

“I love her skills. What she did was just amazing –

and there were no needles involved!”

Lan uses acupuncture without needles to treat a

wide range of injuries and medical conditions and is

now ACC registered.

Dr Lan is offering one treatment for arthritis

at half price for the first 10 people who make an

appointment before April 6. Her clinic is located

at 108 Sawyers Arms Road, and her hours are

Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm.

To discuss your health issues or make an

appointment, phone 323 4168 or 027 231 8388.

HOME & HEATING

Temporary premises

for Smooth-Air

Throughout 2018, it’s business as usual

for ventilation equipment specialists,

Smooth-Air, as they operate from

temporary premises at 351c Blenheim

Road while their Annex Rd premises are

being rebuilt.

Due to re-open in early 2019, the

new building will be better suited to the

company’s needs and more efficient than

the previous one, marketing spokesperson

Kate Rattray says.

“In the meantime, we will be continually

moving onwards and upwards with

an increased product range to service

our commercial, trade and domestic

customers.

“We are also pleased to have on board

our new national sales manager Phil

Henderson, and new regional manager

Richard Jack. Their focus will be on

continuing to provide customers with

excellent service and advice,” Kate says.

Experts in providing quality of air for

domestic and commercial purposes,

Smooth-Air supplies equipment for all

types of ventilation systems including

ducting, grilles, diffusers and fans – in

fact, anything that moves air into, out of,

or around a building.

While the majority of customers are

trade, Smooth-Air also sells directly to

the public, with a range of extraction

and ventilation systems, as well as other

ventilation components for domestic use.

For the domestic market, the focus is on

cleaner, drier, warmer homes. Smooth-Air

has several ventilation systems designed

for the New Zealand climate. The HEX390

is a heat exchanger suitable for domestic

and commercial premises, exchanging

fresh air for stale, while reclaiming heat

(or cooling) from the expelled air.

Their HTU heat transfer unit is another

popular option, transferring heat from

log burners to other areas of the home,

improving energy efficiency and reducing

power consumption.

Smooth-Air also caters for large

commercial projects, with the capacity to

produce substantial quantities of TD panel

duct, as well as provide other specified

equipment, including AirChange heat

exchangers such as those used for the Jellie

Park Pool.

Their skilled workshop team builds

ducting components, and these can be

supplied from stock, or made to customer

specifications. With the purchase of a

new building in Christchurch, which is

dedicated to manufacturing, Smooth-

Air have recently more than doubled

their manufacturing capacity. Along

with their Auckland

and Wellington

workshops, Smooth-

Air’s workshop floor

space now totals nearly

3000sqm, and of the 80

staff nationwide, 30 are

dedicated workshop

staff members.

Engineering manager

Mike Nash oversees all

three workshops.

“As suppliers to

customers in all areas of

New Zealand, we pride

ourselves in doing the

job right first time.” Mike says.

“With manufacturing capability in

Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington

we are able to share workload across

locations, keeping manufacturing inhouse,

providing a flexibility to our

customers and reliability of supply by

cross-utilisation of resources.

“At Smooth-Air, our policy is to provide

a one-stop solution to all our customers

in the HVAC industry. As well as our

manufacturing prowess, we also have the

ability to source items from a wide range of

suppliers both locally and internationally.”

A nationwide operation, Smooth-Air’s

head office is Christchurch, with branches

located in Auckland and Wellington.

Their temporary Christchurch premises

are located at 351c Blenheim Road, just

round the corner from their original

Annex Rd site.
