The first stage of the wider Kōawa programme is well into construction with the existing Dovedale Campus buildings being upgraded and repurposed to fulfil the key academic objectives for the first three years of the course. This campus has now been renamed Kōawa Creative Technologies Precinct and will be referred to as “Kōawa” throughout this document.

The next stage is the delivery of a Production and Postproduction Building (PPB). The PPB will be a state-of-the-art facility that allows for both film and game production and postproduction. This will include edit suites, final sound mix studio, colour grade and a sound stage within one building. The shared space will encourage creative collaborations and the use of advanced technology in both film and game fields. It is a building that will enable commercial activity on-site and provide students with the facility they need to complete their fourth year capstone projects in 2026.

The PPB is a new build, with a footprint of no greater than 1,400m2. We are looking for a design and build partner to work with us for successful delivery of this exciting new development by the end of 2025.

The University of Canterbury (UC) wishes to procure a design and build contractor to lead the Postproduction Building project and coordinate project delivery. We need a contractor who has the relevant skills and experience to excel in this role and keep the project on track for handover by the end of 2025 for student use in Semester one, 2026.
The Successful Respondent will:
have the capacity, capability, experience, attitude, and resources to successfully deliver the project; and
have relevant and recent
