The Building Intelligence Group was appointed as Project Manager to Christchurch Integrated Government Accommodation (CIGA) projects.
The Canterbury earthquakes resulted in private and public sector accommodation shifting outside the Christchurch Central Business District (CBD). The Christchurch Central Recovery Plan (CCRP), was committed to restoring confidence to the central city through bringing Government office accommodation back to the city centre.
The Christchurch Integrated Government Accommodation (CIGA) Programme provides new accommodation for approximately 1500 staff from multiple Government agencies across four separate new buildings in central Christchurch.
The Building Intelligence Group was appointed as Project Manager and our role was to deliver the agency accommodation fitouts within the buildings to the quality and standards required by the Crown to support objectives under the Government Property Group (exPMCoE) Workplace Standards and Guidelines.
Objectives from the co-location include enhanced collaboration and cross government work by multiple agencies sharing facilities, resources and adopting a common ICT system for shared amenity and security whilst meeting any unique business requirements for each site.
