Questions to National transport spokesman Simeon Brown show the fit-out of 8700sq m of Wellington office space will cost $25 million, or about $2870 a square metre.

That’s significantly higher than the roughly $1600 a square metre fit-out costs that got Kainga Ora in trouble earlier this year.

That’s an insane amount of money just for a fit-out.

Hell, you can almost do a new build for less than that and this is just a fit-out and will not stop one car crash. Is there no control on their expenditure?
