Retail & Leisure

RCP was founded to help deliver New Zealand’s largest tourism and entertainment projects - SkyCity Entertainment Centre and Sky Tower. Since then, we have successfully delivered many retail and leisure projects and still harbour a strong passion and connection to the sector, a vital pillar of New Zealand’s economy, reputation, and social fabric.

We’ve worked with public facility operators, private proprietors, and developer / investor clients to deliver new and re-positioned assets across the following experiential categories: 

  • Major retail shopping precincts  

  • Airports 

  • International casinos & hotels 

  • Boutique lodges 

  • Galleries, museums and performing arts venues 

  • Restaurants & bars 

  • Conference & events facilities  

  • Cultural tourism destinations

Through our knowledge of retail and hospitality industry benchmarks and trends, we help owners and operators to conceptualise and deliver high-performing, purpose-built properties that reflect the aspiration of the experience while optimising operational “back of house” efficiency. 

We are increasingly engaging with mana whenua to enable and apply cultural design principles into developments, connecting visitors and patrons with memorable and authentic sense of the local culture and environment.

This includes shaping and enhancing the local placemaking experience through considered street level activation and connectivity with public spaces.
