This superb building was an exciting new addition to Upper Hutt City’s cultural life. It features a stunning exterior and a multi-use interior including a café, galleries and a purpose-built theatre.

Upper Hutt City Council, the design consultants and LT McGuinness worked as partners to ensure that the strict quality criteria and budgets were met throughout the project.

Through our work on a number of public sector developments, we understand the sensitivities around ratepayer-funded projects. The Cultural Centre was completed on time in 2003.
