Choosing a preferred contractor to design and build Christchurch’s new stadium has been delayed until March after companies asked for more time to submit proposals.
The Christchurch City Council had intended to announce a preferred contractor in December, after making a request for proposals in July.
Alistair Pearson, the council’s manager of capital delivery of major facilities, said it was considered “in the best interest of the project” to give contractors more time.
Pearson said the contractor would be announced as soon as they were selected.
