Olivia Hall and Brian Johnston, Business and Operational Leads, were present for a celebratory morning tea and expressed their enthusiasm for what the redevelopment meant for both kaimahi and ākonga on campus.
“It is great to be opening the doors to a building that better meets the needs of learners and staff at Richmond. Well done to everyone involved in this project,” Olivia said.
A block becomes a reception area, with several meeting rooms that are available for learners to use, allowing the adjacent building to return to a relaxing ākonga space.
“There’s more space for learners to enjoy now,” said Aline Lefevre, Administrator at Richmond Campus.
“Now learners can make the most of a chill zone with bean bags or enjoy a quieter study area in the new A Block meeting rooms where they can work together on group projects.”
