After a long renovation, our Northland offices are now open for business. In late March we had the office officially named “Te Tari Ngahere O Te Hiku” and blessed by a local minister Abbey Brown of Te Hapua, in the presence of Summit staff and representatives from the four iwi that make up the Te Hiku Collective.
The Waipapakauri office underwent an extensive renovation to extend the footprint of the building and freshen it up as it was in need of repair. The work was done over a period of 9 months. Needless to say, our Northland Summit team is very happy to have an office base again after working from home and our training base for such a long time.
The opening was originally scheduled for the end of last year but didn’t work out so we aligned it with the first Te Hiku operational meeting for the year.
“We are privileged to have the office blessed and named. This is the next step in strengthening our relationship with our Iwi partners and we are excited at what the future holds for us all,” says Northland Regional Manager, Riki Green.
