Project Description

In January 2019, 400 public sector staff moved into the rebuilt Charles Fergusson Tower (CFT) behind Parliament, the first of nearly 1400 who are expected to work there.

Opened in 1975, the tower comprises a basement, ground floor and 15 upper levels. Although solid, the building did not move during earthquakes and, after 44 years of constant use, it had become rundown, dark and dingy. The challenge was to deliver modern government office space within a structure designed in an earlier era.
