Off-Site Visit To BNZ
The off-site visit to the new BNZ building was very worth while.
Hostesses Barbara and Jessica gave us the “Royal Tour” of the complex pointing out the various aspects of the building and the ways different areas were used by the many departments.
The building is of very modern design and built to 5 star green standard for maximum environmental efficiency. The concept is generally open plan office space with lots of break out rooms for meetings. Some of these rooms cantilever out into the massive Atrium. The visit concluded with a visit to the BNZ museum which displays artifacts dating back to the 1800's.
Special thanks to Ross Garner for organising this visit.
Next week is Committee Night although there will be a short Viewpoint by Don Johnston on his involvement in the administration of the recent elections.
