North Kumutoto

Build Wellington (formerly City Shaper, the development arm of the Wellington City Council) undertook the redevelopment of a significant area of public space around the new PWC building on site 10 at North Kumutoto on the Wellington waterfront.

This is an area which features a number of significant historic heritage assets.  Our brief required that we provide heritage architectural services input into aspects of the development of public open space within the North Kumutoto landscaping works in association with Isthmus Group.

Our tasks included:

  • Undertaking a Heritage Management Plan for the proposed works, that described the heritage values of the area, identified potential risks to the heritage, and provided appropriate strategies for protecting the heritage values and features;
  • Design input and review of the proposed conservation methodologies for the historical features of the area including the former Toll Booth building and the Falcon Shoal Buoy;
  • Review methodologies for carrying out refurbishment to gates, wharf edges (namely the Tug Wharf), and reuse of extant timber cobbles;
  • Review design of heritage items.
