Invercargill City Council

C1186 - Project 1225 Base Build Design Team

The Museum Redevelopment project, known as Project 1225, will be a landmark project for Invercargill City Council (ICC).

ICC committed in its Long-Term Plan 2021-2031 to invest in redeveloping the region’s museum and art gallery. ICC subsequently adopted its 2022-23 Annual Plan, which included the approval of a proposed new build for the museum.

To enable this, the demolition of the existing museum (pyramid) building is required. A new home for the tuatara will be purpose-built on the Queens Park grounds, and an off-site separate museum and art storage facility will be built in Tisbury to house the collections

This specific opportunity is for Design services of Project 1225 base build from Preliminary design through to and including construction delivery of the base build.

What we need

ICC wishes to appoint a full design team under a Lead Designer (the Designer) who will be responsible for designing a new facility at Queens Park, Invercargill. It is expected that the period of engagement from start to finish will be from March 2023 through to December 2025 (base build completion).

The Designer will be required to provide suitable preliminary design option(s) to be considered by ICC for approval. On completion of all design stages and approval by ICC, the design team (in part) will be required to support the Main Contractor in delivering the base build construction phase.

The ICC will appoint an experience design team soon after the appointment of the Base Build design team. Both design teams will be required to collaborate and coordinate their designs and support the relevant construction delivery stages (Base Build & Experience Fit-out)

Coordination will be key to a timely delivery and quality outcome for the people of Invercargill and Southland. Each Design team will appoint a “Lead Designer” it will be the responsibility of each “lead designer” to coordinate their designs to mitigate / eliminate services clashes, design
oversights, compliance and omissions.

All designs will be coordinated in a collaborative nature to ensure benefits are realised in construction, usability and operations to deliver a facility that showcases sustainability.
