The Kōtui Team, led by BESIX Watpac, is now based in the Christchurch City Council’s Te Hononga Civic Offices, working alongside Council staff as they develop the concept design which will be made public in the next month. The final detailed design should be completed by January with construction to begin soon after.

BESIX Watpac project director, Greg Muir says having the team based initially in the Te Hononga Civic Offices is great for collaboration.

“Our work on the concept design is progressing well and being on the ground enables us to gain first-hand knowledge of the city, as well as being able to work closely with Council staff and other members of the Kōtui team,” Mr Muir said.

The Kōtui consortium includes BESIX Watpac, Christchurch-based construction companies Southbase Construction and Fulton Hogan, local seismic engineering specialists Lewis Bradford, Christchurch architects Warren and Mahoney, and global stadium design experts Populous and Mott MacDonald.
