Wynyard Quarter Innovation Precinct, Auckland, New Zealand
Client: Precinct Properties
Services: Cost Management & Quantity Surveying
This purpose-built innovation cluster will position Auckland as a high-tech business, research and development centre in the Asia-Pacific region. The proposed Innovation Precinct includes 48,000 square metres of high quality, sustainable office space across five buildings within the Wynyard Quarter block.
The first stage consists of a six-storey, 5 Green Star office development with a two-storey basement carpark, and turning the Mason Brothers industrial building into a three-storey, 5 Green-Star office.
Major below-ground contamination from previous industrial use, and asbestos within existing buildings required close cost control and ongoing risk mitigation measures.
RLB is providing full quantity surveying and cost management services to Precinct Properties.
Due to be completed in 2017.
