Thrifty Car Rental

National car rental group Thrifty were in need of an additional outlet in the Christchurch area. As they needed it to be located near Christchurch International Airport to service that market we helped them secure a suitable piece of land from our own Airspace development. We then provided them with a design and build solution that improves and drives Thrifty’s business operations.

One of the exciting challenges of the construction process was obtaining airport authority permits for the use of a boom crane, which had to be kept to an agreed maximum working height, due to airport runway changes.

Environmental and safety considerations were another big factor in this project due to where sump and drainage pumps were fitted with specialised filters and where the fuel system, built around a 10,000 litre ULP storage tank, was fitted with specialised safety protection.
