Scott Base Redevelopment
Rawlinsons have been appointed cost managers for the new proposed Scott Base Redevelopment. This is the largest project ever undertaken by Antarctica New Zealand and will be a complex multi-year project that will significantly underpin New Zealand’s strategic interests in Antarctica. The purpose of the proposed Scott Base Redevelopment is to fully address known risks and issues with the current, ageing infrastructure and provide a fit for purpose, environmentally sustainable research base that will support New Zealand’s physical presence in the Ross Sea region of Antarctica for the next 40 years. Antarctica New Zealand received $18.5 million in Budget 2019 to move to the next design phase for the project.
