WIN Northland is excited to invite you to join us for a site visit to Whangarei District Council's new civic building. It will be a fit-for-purpose building, designed to provide a welcoming, inclusive and easily accessible customer experience. The building is designed to be sustainable and to strongly reflect our cultural identity and heritage.
The building will be a central hub for local government-related activities, including democratic processes, customer services, administrative functions, council staff, and the Northland Transport Alliance staff.
The Civic Centre will house all 350 council staff, who are currently scattered through several buildings around the city, plus a council chamber which can be used for a public gallery and civil defence response. The building has been designed to accommodate a maximum of 470 staff.
The proposed building has been designed by Team Avery Architects (TAA). The building will have a height of 21m and a GFA of 7,774m², a building coverage of 2048.4m², and an impermeable surface coverage of 5,363m². This building sits on 78 piles where roughly 2kms of steel was driven into the ground. The building substructure itself is steel framed, with rib and infill flooring and suspended slabs. The cladding is a mixture of glazing, equitone panelling and green walls.
