Discussions on the potential purchase of the council's preferred site, at 15 Dowling St, were ``progressing'' with the Dunedin City Council, ORC chief executive Peter Bodeker said in a report to tabled at an ORC council meeting tomorrow.
The preferred tenderer was a collaboration, mainly between McCoy Wixon Architects, of Dunedin, and a national firm, Warren and Mahoney.
Secondary consultants included Holmes and Powell Fenwick (engineering and fire protection), Tonkin and Taylor (geotechnical), and Boffa Miskell (urban and landscape design).
The ORC's building reference group had met the project design team in December, Mr Bodeker said.
After that meeting, the design team had been engaged to carry out the observation, survey and data collection phases for the project and to ``develop a design philosophy and concept design''.
