Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BOPRC) owned its premises in Tauranga, however it was not fit for purpose. BOPRC engaged TPG to undertake a gap analysis to understand where the premises fell short and to identify preferred solutions with indicative costs for adoption in the 2015 – 2025 Long Term Plan, followed by subsequent implementation.
TPG worked with BOPRC to negotiate the lease of 1,400m2 of space in First Avenue, Tauranga. The premises were fitted out as a pilot to test BOPRC’s Organisational Wide Accomodation Plan (OWAP) and to trial a new multi-functional Council Chamber. As BOPRC required this space for only a few years until the refurbishment of their own building had been completed, a number of the interior fittings were designed so they could be removed and incorporated into Council’s refurbished Regional House.
TPG produced the RFP documents resulting in the identification and securing of a project manager, architect and other design professionals to undertake the detailed design work for the Regional House refurbishment.
This project is well on its way to being completed.
