JMA have just completed an external refurbishment of the paint work to the exterior of Government House for Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet.
Government House, Wellington is the official residence of the Governor-General of New Zealand
Floor area: 4,200 m²
Phone: 04-389 8055
Architectural style: Edwardian architecture
Construction started: 1908
The Governor-General is a symbol of New Zealand’s unity and leadership, with the holder of the Office fulfilling important constitutional, ceremonial, international, and community roles.
The Governor-General is appointed on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of New Zealand to serve as the representative of the Head of State, Elizabeth II, Queen of New Zealand.
New Zealand’s Head of State is non-partisan and is not involved in the “business” of government, which is the responsibility of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. This arrangement is best described by the saying that “while the Sovereign reigns, the Government rules.”
New Zealand is a constitutional democracy and neither the Governor-General nor the Queen takes an active or initiating role in the executive functions of Government. By convention the Head of State acts on the advice of Ministers of the Crown, except on rare occasions such as when appointing a Prime Minister after an election.
