Invercargill City Council (ICC) invites contractors to submit their proposal to supply a price as well as a detailed programme to construct the new Tuatara facility in Queens Park. Comprising of a Laboratory & Porch, Nine x Tuatara pens and the re-development of the existing animal enclosure area within Queens Park.
With the closure of the former Southland Museum and Art Gallery (SMAG) due to earthquake risk. Invercargill City Council have taken on the ambitious 1225 Construction programme. This includes a new artefact storage facility, a new Museum/Cultural facility & a purpose built Tuatara facility based on current animal husbandry best practice.
Tuatara have been synonymous with Queens Park for over 40 years. They have been linked to the Museum as a living artefact for all of that time. Relationships have been developed with Iwi and DOC to ensure the survival of the species, with Invercargill Museum having been historically successful in its breeding program and recognised internationally.
This project is an opportunity to be involved in the construction of a uniquely New Zealand experience that will replace a well-loved Invercargill institution, of having our own living dinosaurs available for public viewing.
The design has now been completed and approved by Council. Further information can be found:
