Ministry of Social Development National Office, The Aurora Centre, Wellington

The redeveloped Aurora Centre at 56 The Terrace provides a modern office environment over 24,000m2 for the Ministry of Social Development.

In October 2016, the Ministry of Social Development completed the final relocation for their national office accommodation project. The fitout design by Studio Pacific Architecture comprises a simple but efficient and effective workplace concept replicated over levels 4 -18, with all public facing functions located on levels 1 – 3. A modest refurbishment of additional premises at 89 The Terrace completes MSD’s accommodation solution.

The Building Intelligence Group was engaged as Project Manager for the MSD fitout, commencing with consulting on the Development Agreement, progressing through management of the design procurement and construction phases of the project.

Key to project success was the relationship between all parties, which was based on open, clear and ongoing communication, an aligned vision and a cooperative approach.
