It is with immense shock and sadness that we observe the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake.

Our thoughts and heartfelt wishes go to our staff and their families, our Christchurch-based friends and customers and to the entire Christchurch community. It is a tremendous tragedy and a time of great loss, and we would like to personally offer our condolences to all those affected, and extend our hopes for a smooth journey in the hard times ahead.

We are extremely relieved to report that all Intergen’s Christchurch staff are safe and well.

Having sustained significant damage to our Hereford Street office in the heart of the CBD, our premises will be closed until further notice. Intergen’s Emergency Management team has established channels of communication with our Christchurch staff and is working with them to ensure their wellbeing and safety at this time. The team is currently working through Intergen’s contingency plans and it is expected that these will result in partial Southern operations in the coming week.

In the hope of lessening the hardship felt by our Christchurch team in whatever way we can, we are offering to relocate staff members and their families, enabling them to work out of our other offices.

It is impossible for any of us outside the Canterbury region to comprehend the sheer magnitude of this disaster, or its emotional toll. Again, our thoughts are with Intergen’s Christchurch colleagues, family, friends and customers. As soon as updates become available we will make these available via our website and the @TeamIntergen account on Twitter.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to talk to us about anything at all – or if you need temporary office or meeting space in Auckland, Dunedin or Wellington – please do not hesitate to contact us.
