Our New Head Office Home
It’s been a long and frustrating journey from earthquake damage incurred at our Ferry Road offices back on the 4th September 2011 through to 19th September 2016 but we are finally here!
February 22, 2011, a day all Cantabrians will remember. Progress forward five years and 8 months following the significant damage sustained to the buildings at Ferry Road, and Redpaths Head Office is moving to a re-vamped building at 71 Sturrocks Road, Redwood. It’s been a long journey but finally we are here.
It’s a bitter sweet moment to leave our Head Office we have called “home” for almost 30 years to new premises and I’d hazard to say it’s been one of the longest renovations Redpaths has ever been involved in! Staff have had to endure cramped and restricted conditions for what seems an eternity and it’s a credit to them how well they have handled it all. We truly appreciate their efforts over a testing time for Christchurch and Redpaths.
New beginnings for the Head Office team, but what about our presence in the CBD? Well the store will stay on at the current Ferry Road site until a new purpose built warehouse is completed on the corner site of St Asaph and Barbadoes Streets, a mere 30 meters from the present site, with access from both Ferry Road and St Asaph Street. We see strategically that it is important to maintain a presence in the CBD and this new innovative building will be a great way to move forward. We will truly miss our old premise where some fond memories were initiated, created and implemented….. But it’s a new day!
