SBS Bank Tauranga Branch
Southland Banking Society
SBS Bank required a more prominent location in Tauranga and chose the old McKenzie Building on Red Square as their new home.
Following a selected tender process, Canam were confirmed as main contractor to undertake the fit-out work. Significant demolition was required to remove some of the existing internal structure that had remained after numerous tenants had moved on over the years and provided some insight in to the buildings history. The Landlord required some minor seismic upgrade works and Canam were stood down while these were completed.
The fit-out got underway in mid September 2012 and the existing space was transformed in to a modern banking facility which involved the creation of a banking hall, meeting rooms and offices, staff room, IT room and new disabled toilet. The external parapet and façade were re-clad to provide a modern look and two sets self opening doors were added to create a wind lobby providing direct access from Red Square.
The project was completed on time in November 2012.
