The Dolomite Point Redevelopment Project (DPRP) involves a significant uplift and modernisation of key visitor facilities/infrastructure and enhancement of visitor experience elements at Dolomite Point, Punakaiki, on the South Island’s West Coast. The site is a key anchor for West Coast tourism and has become an iconic short-stop tourist destination on the back of the ‘Pancake Rocks’ and associated blowholes, with 500,000 visitors experiencing the ‘Pancake Rocks’ walkway annually. The investment recognises the importance of the site to the visitor economy of the West Coast and is being funded through the government’s Provincial Growth Fund programme. The work at the site is being led by the Department of Conservation in close partnership with Ngati Waewae and other key agencies.

The Department of Conservation is seeking to engage a supplier who will partner and collaborate closely and bring their full capability, capacity and innovation to the project in order to achieve an outstanding, thoughtful and enduring final design for Dolomite Point visitor infrastructure/facilities. The supplier will be responsible for developing integrated and high-quality final designs and advancing the current conceptual design through successive preliminary, developed and detailed design stages. The supplier will need to provide and lead a range of disciplines necessary to achieve this, including but not limited to, architecture, landscape architecture, geotechnical, civil, structural, traffic design and engineering, water and waste management inputs.
The scope of the final design work includes the following aspects at Dolomite Point:
o A new visitor ‘Experience Centre’;
o Pedestrian crossing solution(s) (of the State Highway) and traffic management and calming measures of the same;
o Vehicle parking (including design of smart parking technology);
o Internal pedestrian and cycle access paths;
o Pedestrian promenade and beautification between the existing precinct and the State Highway;
o Toilet facilities and drinking water amenities; and
o Overall landscaping.
