BNZ opens Wellington workspace for clients

08 Feb 2018

Today, Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) officially opens the doors to its new Wellington Partners Centre located at Ricoh House on 1 Victoria Street.

Situated across two levels, the space provides a mix of flexible working zones, meeting rooms, networking and co-working spaces, self-service kiosks, with a concierge providing onsite support and service.

The new centre includes multiple areas for conversations and collaboration such as ‘The Hive’ for coffee and networking, ‘Cuba Cuba’ for co-working, and a larger space named ‘The Lookout’ for workshops and events.

It also has key digital features such as a wall of curved screens and extensive in-room technology options all play a part in providing a space for BNZ customers to thrive.

BNZ managing partner Charlie Noble-Beasley says she is hugely excited to welcome customers and their clients into this space.

“We know how important it is for our customers to be able to connect and collaborate, and we are really passionate about building an ecosystem that enables them to do just that, all while growing their business.

“Despite this being a temporary building for us, we knew what we needed and have designed it with our customers in mind – it will be great to see it come to life.”

Assurity Consulting CEO Garth Hamilton and BNZ customer believes the Partners Centres are a tangible benefit from the relationship with BNZ.

“It’s important that we have the opportunity to break away from our day-to-day environment to encourage inspiration and new thinking, and BNZ Partners Centres enable us to do that.

“As a leader who travels a lot, it is also great to be able to meet people in offsite locations around the country”.

“All BNZ Partners Centres are comfortable, spacious and fully equipped yet the new Wellington Centre raises this experience even further as a contemporary and innovative space. You know from the moment you arrive and the concierge greets you, that you have all the support you need and it’s truly is an exciting space to work in”.
