KPMG Wellington is on the move

KPMG Wellington is moving to new premises at 10 Customhouse Quay, Wellington, and will be open for business from Monday 16th October 2006. The new offices are in the heart of the CBD and the location will bring KPMG closer to its clients. KPMG will occupy 5 floors over 3,700m2.

Wellington Managing Partner, Andrew Dinsdale, says “the new offices better reflect the company’s brand and the way it wants to be viewed as “passionate, on the ball and flexible..” It’s the first time the Wellington firm, which employs over 700 staff – 200 in Wellington, has shifted in 17 years.”

KPMG worked in combination with local architects Warren and Mahoney and Geyer, as the lead designers, who have also designed the interior fit-out for KPMG Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne offices. Mr. Dinsdale says, “the relationship worked well to produce a great result, and at all stages there was a strong consideration to support local and New Zealand manufacturers, trades people and suppliers. The décor has been selected to match the surroundings and where possible natural, renewable and sustainable materials have been used. The result is a great balance of quality, style and comfort, with a wonderful panoramic view over the Wellington harbour towards Oriental Bay, Eastbourne and the Eastern Hills.”

Mr. Dinsdale says, “KPMG’s business success is dependent on continuing to build strong client relationships and ensuring clients get maximum value.”

The new location offers areas for client presentations and entertainment, with meeting rooms that have the latest communications technology enabling partners and clients can link nationally and globally. The general office layout is open plan with private meeting rooms on all floors. An informal client/staff café with a full time barista accommodates informal meetings and catch-ups.

To avoid disruption to staff and clients the move will be made over a weekend. Other tenants in the new building include law firm Chapman Tripp.
