The Cathedral, a Category 1 Historic Place, was built in 1864 and has been a major landmark of Christchurch. It was severely damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, which saw a number of proposals for its demolition.
The joint venture is structured via a special purpose company, Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Limited, which is tasked with the completion of the project. The shareholdings in the company are 50/50.
The firm is proud to continue its strong association with the Church and to have worked on such a significant heritage project, which it believes will have a positive impact on the community in Christchurch and tourism in the area.
Wynn Williams has a well-established relationship with the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch and has advised Church Property Trustees for many years. The firm has acted in various court cases relating to the Christ Church Cathedral arising from the Canterbury earthquakes. Partner Jeremy Johnson is the Deputy Legal Advisor to the Archbishop of New Zealand and Chancellor (honorary legal advisor) of the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch.
