The Tauranga City Council has revealed plans for their new multi-storey office building on Devonport Road. The building, which will house the Tauranga City Council, will aim for a net zero carbon footprint in its construction. The 10,000sqm building will feature rainwater harvesting and electric vehicle charging spaces.
Developer, Willis Bond, has worked with architects, Warren and Mahoney, in designing the building with the hopes of reducing embodied carbon to its lowest point.

“Willis Bond and Council staff continue to work with mana whenua to ensure that mātauranga Māori principles are incorporated and add to the look and feel of the building”, she said.
