Recent Projects

Projects Parakiore Recreation and Sport Centre 

Pacific Commissioning’s role: Commissioning Management 

When construction is complete in 2025, the Parakiore Recreation and Sport Centre will be the largest aquatic and indoor recreation venue in New Zealand. Sited in the heart of Christchurch city and an anchor project in the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, the facility will be the South Island’s home to high performance sports, requiring substantial high-tech equipment, including Olympic level timing and scoring systems, moveable pool floors and dive pool sparge system to soften entry. The project is breaking new ground for this kind of facility, including the innovative use of the city’s wastewater system to aid the facility’s heating and cooling. The Aquatic Sensory Experience is also the first in the country. 

Wellington convention centre – Takina 

Pacific Commissioning’s role: ICA 

Purpose built Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre is located in the heart of Wellington opposite Te Papa. The Capital’s largest built infrastructure investment since the Wellington Regional Stadium over two decades ago, the attractive wave shaped building design reflects its harbour setting, in a location that’s a key drawcard for visitors and Wellington residents alike. The impressive floor plan features three storeys of double height spaces with mezzanine floors, providing six levels of space. Flexible set ups with collapsible walls cater to conferences and exhibitions of all sizes. Residents love the space and testament to its appeal the venue is booked out well in advance. 

National Archives 

Pacific Commissioning’s role: ICA 

The much-needed new National Archives building in Wellington due for completion in 2026. In addition to its focus on creating one of New Zealand’s most seismically-resilient buildings, with a minimum 4 Green Star rating, a key objective of the new building is to give public greater access to view the range of taonga that National Archives care for on their behalf. The building will be base-isolated and contain quarantine and secure loading areas, state-of-the-art shelving, specialist audiovisual and film suites, conservation and digitisation facilities. Humidity and air control is paramount in a building that’s home to such fragile items, with rigorous bands for temperature. Thorough tuning of the building will also be a focus once the archives are loaded in.
