This is notification of an upcoming procurement/supply opportunity.

The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Te Papa) is re-locating its natural history wet collection from its existing Spirit Collection Area (SCA) facility on Tory Street. The wet collection contains natural history specimens stored in alcohol solutions in jars, pails, and tanks. The SCA relocation project is a programme of works to acquire a new site and consent, design and construct a new purpose-built SCA facility for Te Papa.
The current SCA contains six large environmentally controlled storerooms with associated labs and work rooms. Sophisticated fire suppression, air handling and temperature control systems manage the storage of hazardous substances used in the facility. These systems monitor and stabilise room temperatures, humidity, and exhaust alcohol vapour. Sensor alarms link back to Te Papa's Cable Street security operation.
The proposed project budget is $166.3m. This is inclusive of professional fees, contingency, and the purchase of land. The construction budget is estimated to be up to $100m.
This opportunity is for multiple professional services providers for the SCA relocation project – covering consenting, design, and construction of the new SCA facility.
Contract Commencement circa 1 May 2023.
