Tuatara Structures has utilised our innovative swing-leg roof lift construction technique in Invercargill for the first time.

Our clients, HWR Property, contracted Tuatara Structures for the build, with tenants already lined up for the exciting new attraction. The 1500m2 building we are constructing on the corner of Nith and Tyne Streets will house Invercargill’s first indoor trampoline park, Jump ‘N’ Fun.

The completed facility will house a variety of different trampolines, including three Olympic-sized trampolines, a giant foam pit with mini trampolines, and a dodgeball trampoline area. Party rooms, a viewing platform, and toilets will complete the project.

After an initial delay in construction due to consenting, the build is now well underway. It is scheduled for completion by early 2018, with a 16-week construction programme.

The swing-leg roof lift technique results in a build that is up to 25% faster than traditional construction techniques. It also reduces the health and safety risks as the construction of the roof is completed on the ground. This ground construction drastically reduces the time spent working at height. On a project of this size, it also makes for impressive viewing!

We look forward to seeing the final product in a couple of months – and may have to come back for a quick bounce once the trampoline park is ready for jumpers.
