Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet manages Government House Auckland.
a. The key procurement objective is to construct a new external canopy that links the House with the pavilion to address operational and functional challenges.
b. The southern walkway located at Government House Auckland (GHA) is currently an uncovered narrow path exposed to the elements.
c. Visiting dignitaries and heads of state currently must travel through the house if they wish to get to the pavilion during inclement weather conditions.
d. The project involves the design of a prefabricated structure and associated building works to provide a sheltered journey from the pavilion to a new access point into the residence (the Dining Room). This route is visually separated from the official entrance providing clarity and privileging arrival in to the residence.
e. To attach a covered walkway to GHA, alterations must be made to accommodate a new wider access way into the House to meet accessibility requirements (separate tender).
f. The alterations to the House need to be completed prior to the construction of the covered walkway to ensure the height of the covered walkway meets the requirements of the main entry/exit point of the House and disruption is kept to a minimum.
g. A Building Consent is being processed by Auckland Council. The Main Contractor is not required for this. A waiver for the requirement of an Outline Plan of Works has been granted by Auckland Council, meaning a Resource Consent is not required.
