The Situation

Located in Antarctica the coldest place on Earth, Scott's Hut was designed to house the first explorers on the continent. Built in the UK in 1918 it was brought down via ship with the orginal expedition team.

Designated as an Antarctic Historic Site the hut is now over 100 years old and needs regular maintenace. As it's one of most historic buildings in New Zealand's history, restoration work needs to be carefully planned and excuted well to preserve the buliding's intregrity.
