Dark Sky Project – Tekapo

July 2, 2019

This amazing multi-million dollar astronomy facility, a joint venture with Ngāi Tahu Tourism, was officially opened by the Governor General yesterday.

Dark Sky Project is an astronomy centre located at the heart of the Aoraki/Mt Cook Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve offering an informative and interactive night sky experience.

RCP has provided project management services for the delivery of this new 1140sqm building on the Tekapo lakefront with the isolated location and alpine environment of the site requiring well planned logistics for the successful delivery of this project.

The project has been a huge success and will be a valuable addition to the region and its community.
