McKee Fehl has been engaged to build The High Commission of India’s new state-of-the-art chancery, executive accommodation and sophisticated entertainment space in Wellington’s Parliamentary Precinct.
This high-profile consular space will play a pivotal role enhancing cultural, diplomatic and economic relationships between India and New Zealand.
The diverse nature of the brief includes public and private spaces across 5 levels. This includes an entertainment hall, performance facilities, a centralised courtyard, business hub and apartment suites. The incorporation of tracery screens and a jali stone will further foster a unique Kiwi-Indian identity for the chancery.
McKee Fehl took possession of the site in September 2019 after the project was left dormant for 16 months. We are working closely with Warren and Mahoney Architects and structural and services engineers, Beca, to complete works.
Located in the close proximity of CBD Wellington, the project requires careful planning and strategic logistics, on and offsite, to ensure minimal disruption to central city movement.
