Harbour City Centre

RCP managed the upgrade and seismic strengthening of the historic Harbour City Centre in Central Wellington. The goal was to refurbish the building and in turn, revitalise it to a contemporary and highly functional commercial and retail premises. The project brief was to complete structural strengthening to bring the building up to 100% of code.  Construction of the project was completed while the building was approximately 75% occupied at all times.

The key to the success of this project stemmed from a strong project culture, open communication as well as engagement with the Client and Contractor throughout the project to support a ‘no surprises’ environment. The early involvement of the Main Contractor was also a critical part of developing the staging and sequencing of the works in the most efficient manner. Robust planning and programming, along with the Contractor’s determination, meant that the construction works were delivered on time and within the agreed budget thereby meeting our client’s requirements.
