A bit about us
The creation of the new delivery Crown agency Kāinga Ora on 1 October 2019 marked the beginning of a step change in housing and urban development in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Kāinga Ora has brought together the people, capabilities and resources of the KiwiBuild Unit, Housing New Zealand and its development subsidiary HLC. This new agency is designed to enable a more cohesive, joined-up approach to delivering the government’s priorities for housing and urban development in New Zealand. These priorities include addressing homelessness and making homes more affordable for New Zealanders.
As part of the wider Unlock Avondale Plan currently enabled through Panuku, Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities (Kāinga Ora) has identified the need for a dedicated senior housing complex within the central Avondale area at 3 – 5 Community Lane and 1825 – 1833 Great North Road. The proposed development, known as Highbury Triangle, includes the construction of 236 homes across 5 buildings, ranging between 6 and 8 stories.
The homes will predominantly be made up of a state housing complex for older people, alongside a component of market homes, and commercial and community spaces. The development will provide secure and sustainable housing for people 55+ in age and enable our customers to age in place while providing spaces for social interaction.
The public housing component of Highbury Triangle project will provide a mix of one bedroom and one and a half bedroom homes. All homes will be accessible and serviced by lifts. The inclusion of one and a half bedroom homes provides flexibility for those residents requiring a support or a care worker to stay overnight. It also allows for couples that need separate bedroom spaces. The market homes will range from one to two bedroom homes.
What we need
Kāinga Ora will be shortly issuing a request for Registrations of Interest (ROI) from suitably qualified, experienced and resourced organisations who are able to construct the project works at Highbury Triangle. The main contractor will be responsible for the main civil works and the construction of the 236 homes across 5 buildings ranging between 6 and 8 stories. In addition, the project works include the delivery of commercial and community spaces.
The scope of works excludes demolition of any existing buildings as well as bulk earthworks and enabling civil works. These activities will be undertaken by other civil contractors.
