Callaghan Innovation is New Zealand's Innovation Agency. Our primary objective is to support science and technology based innovation and its commercialisation by businesses, for a better New Zealand.

A Programme Business Case (PBC) was presented to Minster Woods in August 2018 outlining the investment needed to address decades of underinvestment in the Gracefield site to create a world-class innovation hub, The PBC proposed a phased multi-year redevelopment of the site within two programmes of work - the Tactical Estates Continuity Programme and Strategic Programme.

The Tactical Estates Continuity Programme seeks to fulfill its duty of care responsibilities to its employees and tenants. The programme has been split into five tranches with Tranche 5 - Business Growth Workspaces seeking to resolve the issue of old facilities and limited appropriate workspaces constraining the growth of Callaghan Innovation's commercial businesses. T5.1 represents one of the projects within Tranche 5.

What we need:
Tranche 5.1 is a project that encompasses the expanding of workspaces for three stakeholders: KiwiStar, Measurements Standards Laboratory NZ (MSL) and Protoshop to enable business growth. Callaghan Innovation, through GIQ is seeking a Registration of Interest to provide Architectural consultancy services through the design and construction of the project. The architects will be required to fully design and carry out site observation during the construction phase, as well as be the lead consultant for the multi-disciplinary team.

The successful organization will have experience in architectural delivery of complex, multi-disciplinary construction projects, working with both local and international consultants and contractors, and have experience working on a live site with business as usual and core activities remaining within the existing building. The organization will also have experience in the use of 3D Modelling software and coordinating consultant models.

What next?
If you are interested in this unique opportunity to be part of one of the first projects undertaken and the Gracefield site, where significant investment over the next 10+ years is taking place, then please respond to this ROI by the deadline.
