Anderson Lloyd, a leading New Zealand law firm, is pleased to announce a planned relocation of its Ōtautahi Christchurch office to a new, state-of-the-art, 1,100 sqm office space on level 2 of The Regent, located on the corner of Cathedral Square and Worcester Street in Christchurch.
Kerry O’Donnell, Anderson Lloyd’s Board Chair, says: “We are excited to be moving to The Regent, which is being driven by the growth of our business and our team thanks to the trust placed in us by our valued clients, and we’re looking forward to continuing to serve them in our new home.”
O’Donnell says the relocation highlights Anderson Lloyd’s commitment to continuing to foster a modern and innovative employee and client-centric workplace.
“We are creating a dynamic and purpose-driven environment with flexibility and collaboration at its core where our people can thrive and deliver on our commitment to client excellence.”
Sustainability was a key consideration for Anderson Lloyd and O’Donnell says: “The Regent incorporates energy-efficient and other sustainability features aligning with Anderson Lloyd’s commitment to environmental responsibility as the first mid-large size New Zealand law firm to become Toitū net carbonzero certified.
For example, Cook Brothers, the base build main contractor, has a full-time sustainability carpenter who repurposes excess and demolition materials into items that can be reused within our communities.”
The Regent is named in tribute to the Regent Theatre, originally known as the Royal Exchange Building, built on the site in 1904 and home to many businesses before it had to be demolished because of earthquake damage.
Construction is progressing on schedule, with the base build set for completion by February. Anderson Lloyd expects to conclude its fit-out and move into the new office by mid-2024. Anderson Lloyd is partnering with Gaze Commercial to customise the fit out of its space.
