THE CAPE FACILITIES
Relocation of visitor facilities and interpretation centre away from Te Ara Wairua (path of the spirits) to provide principal reception points for visitors to Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga).
The project included significant open space landscape regeneration and sensitive art integrated references to historical and cultural context. Extensive consultation was required with local iwi groups, tour operators and Northland Tourism. Stanley Group assisted in value managing construction costs after traditional tendering had led to potential cost over runs. Re-engineering the project, the building component was completed for substantially less than the original tender returns.
