If our people are our DNA than our projects are what defines us. The end result of all the hard work, approach and application of our expertise. With fast-paced growth in the commercial sector, we’re proud of the growing list of projects with Form’s name on them.


To design and build a landmark administration building to house the management and operational staff of the Mangatawa Papamoa Blocks Inc (MPBI). The build will embody the unique connection between the Hapu O Nga Potiki, Tauranga Moana Iwi, Ngati Ranginui, Ngaiterangi and Ngati Pukenga, the whenua (land) and te moana (sea). The roof is to be shaped in the form of a whale tale, encompassing the traditional story of ‘Te Wai O te Tohora’– The Legend of Mangatawa.


A Design & Build project for the new headquarters of MPBI. Strategically sited on the northern slope of Mangatawa Maunga, overlooking the incorporation’s land, property and Mount Mauao.

The building includes a total of 380m2 of office space, featuring exposed laminate beams and columns, high raking ceilings, expansive decking, a large entrance canopy, sculptural carvings, water features, new car-parking and roading; linking the new building to the Mangatawa Papakainga, business subsidiaries and the Mangatawa Marae. Every aspect of the build reflects a strong cultural and historic connection.


Completed to the highest standards, this is a truly unique build and all involved in the project are proud to be a part of what will be a legacy for future generations. The multiple award-winning project was made possible by a strong collaborative relationship between Form and the client.

“It is an unusual situation for a client to work alongside a contractor, however, our team have managed to cohesively progress through all of the usual project challenges. By engaging Form during the pre-construction stage we have been able to minimise project issues and tap into each other’s experience. Form were most helpful throughout the design phase and have carried that through to the day-to-day activities”
