Biosecurity New Zealand is a business unit of the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and works to prevent harmful organisms crossing New Zealand’s borders. It manages border and compliance activities as well as preparing for, and responding to, any biosecurity incursions that may occur.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in partnership with the MPI and the Principal Consultant (Designgroup Stapleton Elliott ‘DGSE’) to deliver an additional Post Entry Quarantine (PEQ) facility.

MPI invites an RFP response from contractors to be engaged early as MPI’s greenhouse contractor, under a two-stage process;

1. Stage 1: via a Consultancy Agreement (to be entered into with MPI) and working directly within the design team (including the main contractor) to inform the design process so as to identify and design the greenhouse solution required, integrate that solution into the overall facility design, participating in design reviews to reduce the design specific risks for future site variation requests, identify long lead-time items required, develop building methodology plans and support design solution decisions that keep the project within budget, time and quality.

2. Stage 2: As a “named contractor” under the main construction contract, to manufacture, supply install and commission the greenhouse portion of the IPEQ design as a sub-contracted party to the main contractor.

We are looking for credible providers who have the current capability and experience to design, manufacture, install and then commission a site-specific PEQ greenhouse solution.
