NIWA is seeking short-term leased commercial premises to suit 150 staff in probable locations of Kilbirnie or Mirimar, Wellington.
The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) is planning the redevelopment of its site at Greta Point in Wellington. NIWA is seeking proposals for temporary premises to accommodate its operations for the duration of the redevelopment project.
The premises brief could be satisfied across single or dual sites from one or more owners.
NIWA’s indicative brief is:
• Offices: 1,500 sqm to 2,000 sqm of open plan offices to suit 150 staff / visitors.
• Warehousing: 500 sqm to suit vehicle storage and workshops, but this requirement is flexible.
• Yard: 500 sqm, but this requirement is flexible.
• Car parking: 80 on-site car parks.
All components are to be available so that NIWA can be operational on-site during mid-2021 with any fitout completed prior to this. NIWA anticipates a lease term of approximately 2.5 years with some short-term rights of renewal.
Any landlord who has the ability to meet this requirement should respond. Responses are also welcome from real estate agencies presenting proposals on behalf of landlords.
Colliers International (licensed REAA 2008) have been appointed to act in this request for suitable premises. Colliers will coordinate and source options, and will be the point of contact for this requirement.
A copy of the Request for Proposals (RFP) document and response form can be obtained from Colliers International by contacting Chris Farhi ( or 021 906 805).
Responses to the RFP must be provided electronically to Colliers International no later than 4pm on Tuesday 27 October 2020.
