Hugh Broughton Architects working in collaboration with Jasmax has been selected to lead the redevelopment of Scott Base for Antarctica New Zealand on Ross Island.
The existing facility, first established by Sir Edmund Hillary in 1957, is reaching the end of its functional life and needs to be redeveloped to manage risk, maintain standards and support the requirements of New Zealand’s world-class scientists.
The team, which includes WSP Opus (Structural and Civil Engineering), Steensen Varming (Building Services Engineering) and Turner & Townsend (Cost Consultancy), will spend the next 12 months creating four concept designs based on user requirements, site investigations and lessons learnt from the experience of other National Antarctic Programmes. Antarctica New Zealand will then recommend a preferred option for a modern, low-impact, efficient facility that satisfies New Zealand’s scientific needs and strategic interests. The Business Case with concept designs will be presented to Government in December 2018.
