Savvy Christchurch businesses can join the worldwide trend towards flexible working spaces with the opening of Regus’ second venue in the city at the end of February. Located on Durham Street, the new space in the Awly Building joins Hazeldean Road in Addington, which opened in December 2017.
Office space isn’t the only thing that makes a great workplace, of course; car parking, bike racks, showers, monthly networking events, 24/7 access and kitchen facilities are all provided. Add an excellent hospitality package, and the flex appeal’s apparent.
The new Awly Building site also comes complete with fabulous courtyard, onsite café Curious Palate, famed national chain Hikari Sushi Bar, and good karma – it’s Christchurch’s only 5-star green rated building (as well as one of the safest in New Zealand, with three seismic stabilising factors).
Pierre notes the green credentials were important for Regus. “One of the benefits of flexible working is to lower the environmental impact of the workspace, so the 5-star green rating aligns very well with our core values around environmental impact.”
