The Ministry has a requirement to fit-out a new office building in Wellington to provide a modern and open plan environment for staff. The Ministry has approximately 1,700 staff located in Wellington across four buildings within the central business district.

Matauranga House (33 Bowen Street) is the Ministry’s largest building and accommodates the majority of people. The other three buildings are to be replaced or sub-leased. The Ministry has negotiated a lease for 11 floors of No 1 The Terrace (7,898 SQM) to accommodate all of the staff currently accommodated across the other three buildings.

No 1 The Terrace is being refurbished and strengthened by the Landlord with this work underway.

The Ministry is required to independently procure its own Main Contractor to complete the Sub-divisional Hard Fit-out (SHF), being the partitioning and fit-out work together with fixtures, fittings and equipment as detailed by the SHF. Construction works are expected to commence in approximately August 2019 and to be completed as soon as practically possible. The Ministry's SHF Contractor will be required to work alongside the Landlord’s Main Contractor to comply with all health and safety, security and access procedures and programme requirements. The Landlord’s Main Contractor is LT McGuinness.

To provide certainty around resource commitment and programme compliance, the Ministry is seeking to secure a preferred SHF main contractor on the basis of a Preliminary and General (P&G) and margin tender. The preferred contractor will be required to finalise programmes, confirm procurement lead times and provide input into the developing SHF design. Upon completion of the detailed plans and specifications (in May 2019), the preferred SHF main contractor will tender the SHF sub-trades on an open book basis to deliver a lump sum fixed price to allow the SHF Contract to be executed.
