Design team to be assembled for Luggate Memorial Hall

Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) has today released a request for proposal (RFP) to assemble a design team for the permanent replacement for Luggate Memorial Hall.

QLDC Property Director Richard Pope advised the requirements will include designing to certified Passive House standard.

“We are keen to see proposals from suitably qualified designers who have knowledge and experience with Passive Housing,” said Mr Pope.

“As this type of build for a community space is relatively new for our district, we will be open to proposals from designers with experience with residential Passive Housing”.

In order to get potential contractors involved in the process early, expressions of interest will also be sought from contractors interested in being involved in the design process.

“We plan to release a request for proposal (RFP) for this early contractor involvement (ECI) on the GETS portal shortly,” Mr Pope said.

Once the design team is assembled, the project will then move into the next stages.

“This will include revisiting the early feedback provided by the community in the Our Community Spaces report and factoring this in to the draft designs. A particular area of focus will be how the new facility can help meet community space needs not only for Luggate but for the wider Upper Clutha community,” added Mr Pope.

Responses to the Design Team RFP can be provided via the GETS portal from today until 12 noon on 20 May 2019.

Community consultation on the draft designs is expected to take place later in 2019 with the permanent hall earmarked for completion in early 2021.
