Early involvement by the quantity surveyor in setting the budget for the Wharewaka project helped ensure there were no cost overruns.

Rider Levett Bucknall director Grant Watkins says the company provided quantity surveying and cost management services for the project.

"The commitment shown by Wellington Waterfront Ltd, the design team architecture + and main contractor LT McGuinness, was also a key factor in the smooth running of the project. Everyone recognised the significance of the project for the Wharewaka o Poneke Charitable Trust and for Wellington, and worked to create an iconic building that would be a real asset for the city."

RLB says the significant amount of ground stabilisation works required meant there was a potential for unforeseen cost escalations. However, everything went to plan and the project was able to be completed on time and to budget.
