Find out about the range of projects we are delivering as part of the government office accommodation programme.
These government office accommodation projects are creating opportunities to co-locate government operations in centres around the country.
The Auckland accommodation project is creating a centralised office hub in Manukau. This will allow agencies to co-locate in either a single government building, or as part of campus style precincts that link to the community and transport routes.
The Manukau hub is expected to be a 10-15,000m² office development and act as an office for more than 1,000 public servants.
Stage one of the procurement for the Manukau Hub has been completed, and Stage two is underway. The target date for occupation is late 2026.
Future projects in the Auckland region will look at opportunities to the North, West and South of the City – in Albany, Henderson and the southern corridor.
We are working with Te Kawa Mataaho Public Service Commission to lead the planning and delivery of the structural strengthening of Bowen House, which is being converted to a public service leadership hub. The hub will adopt the principles being used in other Government Office Accommodation Programme (GOAP) projects.
We work with agencies to plan for accommodation needs and opportunities in the regions and outer metro areas.
We are partnering with Willis Bond on their development at Blue Mountains campus in Upper Hutt to create a vibrant environment for government agencies and public servants who live in the area.
Centrally located at 68 Ward Street, the five-hectare campus offers flexible commercial and retail space to suit a wide range of businesses.
The campus has a very strong resilience profile against natural hazards, with low risk of shaking and liquefaction during an earthquake and zero risk of flooding, slope failure or tsunami. It has strong transport links and facilities, resilient buildings, strong infrastructure and back-up capabilities. Master-planned by Studio Pacific Architecture, the campus integrates existing heritage buildings, new modern low-rise buildings and landscaped public spaces.
The campus features integrated amenities for staff including:
The new buildings are designed to achieve 5-Star Green Star design and as-built ratings. They will also achieve a minimum 5-Star NABERSNZ rating and will be fitted with energy monitoring systems and other initiatives to reduce embedded carbon and carbon emissions.
Work has begun establishing a government office hub in Porirua City. We are working with several agencies who have space requirements in the city to create a regional presence closely linked to public transport and central city amenities. The target date for occupation is late 2025.
The Manawatū is a growth region and, as a result, agency demand for office space has increased in recent years. Planning for a regional office hub has begun, and the target date for occupation is late 2025.
We are exploring office developments in areas including:

A Programme Steering Group has been established to oversee the development of office accommodation projects. This group works alongside a group of agency chief executives, Te Kawa Mataaho Public Service Commission, Government Chief Digital Officer and other subject matter experts to provide governance.
Leadership and guidance from a cross-government working group will feed into the projects. This group represents public sector leadership on:
The group includes professional capability, portfolio planning and property design and performance support from GPG.
