Scott Base Redevelopment

Scott Base is Aotearoa New Zealand’s home on the ice. The facility is the strategic hub for scientists from New Zealand and across the globe to carry out some of the most important research in the world.

The redevelopment of Scott Base will see the aging infrastructure replaced with a safe, fit-for-purpose, and sustainable research facility that will support New Zealand’s presence in the Ross Sea region of Antarctica for the next 50 years.
