Apex Car Rental

Apex Car Rentals, one of New Zealand’s largest car rental companies, was looking to expand its market by building premises adjacent to Christchurch International Airport. Initial discussions were opened up with our Development team about our Airspace development land tracts, which proved very attractive to our client.


The design and build proposal advanced was a new facility that would sit on a 10,000m2 site, providing ample room to accommodate a fleet of nearly 400 rental cars at a given time.

The facility itself was designed to support two primary functions; a public front section, to allow for a customer reception and pick up/drop off activities, and a private rear section to support fleet maintenance, including a multi-car garage, workshops, along with grooming and washing areas.

Attention to detail accents the project, with several architectural design features that add not just to the aesthetic finish, but to its functionality, including a covered walkway and entrance canopy designed to prevent customers getting wet when loading/unloading cars.
