ASB Hamilton Regional Centre to open in 2018

ASB Hamilton Regional Centre to open in 2018

Almost twenty-five years after ASB opened its first Hamilton branch, ASB announces it will open a new regional centre and branch on the corner of Bryce and Barton Streets in Hamilton, opposite Centre Place, in mid-2018.

The new ASB Waikato Regional Centre will provide office space and meeting rooms for more than 90 people from the local ASB retail, commercial, wealth and insurance and rural banking teams.

The 1,150 square metre centre will also employ the latest in workplace design and technology and operate on the principles of activity-based working – similar to ASB’s head office in Auckland.

On the ground floor, Hamilton’s latest ASB branch will support customers with the latest digital banking services including 24-hour automated ‘express banking’ transaction facilities, business banking, Smart ATMs and video access to banking experts alongside the same friendly, local branch team.

ASB Executive General Manager Corporate, Commercial and Rural Steve Jurkovich says ASB is delighted to announce plans for the purpose-built regional centre in the heart of Hamilton.

“The CBD is the heartbeat of the regional economy and ASB is delighted to support Hamilton’s CBD with our move,” Mr Jurkovich says.

“It’s pleasing to mark 25-years of service to our Waikato customers with this fresh commitment to the region.”

Wallace Development Company has been part of an extensive planning process for the new regional centre, and its General Manager Paul Broederlow says it is an exciting project to be involved with.

“We have had the privilege of working with ASB in the past, and this new project has the hallmark of being a significant enhancement to the Hamilton CBD,” Mr Broederlow says.
