Work is under way on the construction of the new RD1 building in Invercargill.
Jones and Cooper Builders owner Peter Cooper said the Gore-based construction company owned the 1400-square-metre building at 67 Bill Richardson Dr and would lease it to RD1.
Planning for the building started in November and work had just started on site.
Mr Cooper expected it would be completed by mid-May.
RD1 had outgrown its current premises in Bond St and was looking to expand, he said.
The new building had been designed for further expansion if required.
