Shed 10 is part of the Queen’s Wharf development located in downtown Auckland, New Zealand. The shed is a double storey warehouse which was constructed in the 1920s to support the import and export of goods to and from New Zealand. 

Waterfront Auckland are the owners of the Queen’s Wharf development and were looking to upgrade the site. Royal HaskoningDHV were engaged to work alongside a local architect (Jasmax) to create a masterplan for upgrading the terminal infrastructure and the complete refurbishment of Shed 10 into an international ferry terminal.

With over thirty years’ expertise in the development of passenger terminals, Royal HaskoningDHV brought a wealth of experience to this project. An innovative design was developed which transformed the Shed into a facility for turnaround and day call cruises, as well as a stylish venue which could accommodate events on non-cruise days.

The completed building has undergone a significant transformation and now as an excellent reputation with the cruise companies who make use of the facilities, as well as other patrons who use the space for events. 

In the height of the season, the wharf is now able to accommodate significant traffic five days per week.
