8-14 Willis St

Statistics New Zealand


McKee Fehl is proud to have been engaged by Argosy Property Limited (Argosy) as the design and build construction contractor for Statistics New Zealand’s new offices at 8-14 Willis St.

We have recently completed extensive construction activities to extend, seismically upgrade and refurbish the existing offices to 130% of National Building Standard (NBS).

Working with Argosy , we have created a modern and dynamic environment to compliment an activity-based working style. As part of this, the building features a central atrium and stairwell to encourage stair use, maximise natural daylight and improve connectivity between the floors.

This building is on track to achieve 6 Green Star and 6 star NABERNZ – with on-site solar energy generation, rainwater harvesting and 90% of construction waste diverted from landfill.

High specification end of trip facilities have been incorporated into this multi-level 11,800m2 open plan office, creating an innovative and sustainable space to accommodate  approximately 1000 staff in the central CBD.

The tenant, Stats NZ are very pleased with their new home – and we are delighted to have been a part of their journey.

A huge thank you to all our consultants, contractors, suppliers and stakeholders for the collaboration and communication throughout the project.

Finally, a huge thank you to Argosy & Stats NZ for their trust and collaboration over the past three year

This redevelopment is an extension of an adjoining project at Stewart Dawson's Corner. Both projects follow McKee Fehl’s successful efforts to repurpose 15 Stout Street for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment offices, on behalf of Argosy, in 2013-14.
