Project overview

With the growth and development in the Rototuna area over recent years, Hamilton City Council has had looked to invest in the area to ensure the community has suitable community facilities. One of these key community assets is the Te Kete Aronui Rototuna library project. This project includes the development of the library and community hub and will create a civic and cultural heart for Rototuna Village. Once complete, as well as acting as a community library, the 1,600m² building will provide small meeting rooms for group work and larger meeting rooms which can be booked for community events. In addition, outdoor spaces, bike and car parks and a village square are being incorporated into the overall design, which aims to nurture and enthuse the Rototuna community and all who use the facilities. Our Project Management team were engaged by Hamilton City Council to oversee the development and construction of the library.

Project outcomes

Veros provided both procurement and Engineer (to the Contract) services on this project.

Procurement involved the preparation of the formal procurement plan which provided a path to the successful appointment of the main contractor, together with the Registration of Interest and Request for Proposal (RFP) processes. Veros acted as the Chairperson for evaluation process and was fundamental in recommending the most suitable team for construction and delivery

As the Engineer to the Contract, Veros established both the tender and contract conditions used for the RFP process. In addition to the negotiating and fine tuning of contract during the tender negotiations with the preferred tenderer.

Project Manager Sun Kim outlines that on the Te Kete Aronui Rototuna library project there have been a few challenges faced and overcome on the project so far. “Our team have overcome a number of issues currently being experienced by the construction industry in terms of advising and managing cost fluctuations and resourcing shortages. Veros have provided contractual advice and negotiated amendments to the contract to best manage the risk whilst at the same time allowing the project to progress to meet their client’s objectives.”
