The Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre (MRRC) is a facility providing a six week residential programme on living and working in New Zealand (including accommodation, education and health care services) to refugees who enter New Zealand under the Refugee Quota Programme. The Government has committed to increasing the refugee quota from 1000 to 1500 per annum from July 2020. As such, facilities at MRRC are being expanded. A new Early Childhood Education (ECE) facility will be required which aims to provide fit for purpose environments that are suitable for use by young children, and their whanau, while they are staying at MRRC.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is seeking to appoint a suitably experienced Architectural practice to design this facility in consultation with representatives from the Ministry of Education (MoE) and MBIE.

The Ministry is looking for credible practices with capability and experience delivering fit for purpose ECE facilities. They need to have a sound track record of considering Safety in Design throughout their design development, consideration of environmentally sustainable design initiatives and have experience delivering similar projects successfully within tight project timeframes and on complex operational sites.

The MRRC residential programme is recognised internationally for achieving refugee settlement outcomes. This is a unique opportunity to design an ECE facility which will deliver better outcomes for people staying at the MRRC and support the needs of New Zealand’s newest residents.
