Ivey West and Memorial Hall redevelopment
In late 2022, Lincoln University announced a project to reconstruct and restore Ivey West and Memorial Hall, two of the University’s most recognisable buildings which were severely damaged in the 2010/2011Canterbury earthquakes.
The redevelopment project, which commenced in December 2022, involves structural strengthening, weathertightness and internal refurbishment works for the revered buildings.
Prior to the earthquakes, these iconic Category 1 historic buildings afforded a striking focal point to the Lincoln campus, but since 2010 they have been sequestered behind safety fencing while options for reconstruction were considered.
So it has been a huge boost for Lincoln University to be able to confirm to the community the redevelopment of these buildings and their eventual redeployment as key campus assets.
