New Build – Te Aroha Event Centre

Value:                $5,000,000
Duration:         18 months
Completion:    August 2016

The brief

IPMS was initially engaged to provide professional advice and to participate in the panel interviewing of the design and build companies. IPMS was part of a three man panel that included a Councilor and the Council CEO. We were then invited to observe during the design process and provide professional advice to Community Trust. At the end of this process we were asked to provide an offer of service for the project management of the construction phase of the project.

Our work

IPMS provided estimating, procurement management and construction contract administration services on this project. We had to manage the expectations of two very different clients as this project was a joint venture between the Matamata Piako District Council and the Te Aroha Community Trust.

The outcome

The project was an outstanding success and was delivered on time and on budget. The building was officially opened on the 14th October 2016 and will cater for sports such as Basketball, Volleyball, Badminton, Netball, Foosball and Gymnastics. The conference centre can sit 160 people for dinner and accommodate 250 for conferencing.
