Thank you to all those who joined us to celebrate the grand opening of the pro clima HUB on 07.07.17! Over 300 people helped us to make this significant event memorable.
Guests on the day included politicians, Pro Clima team members from around the world, construction partners, architects, designers, builders, friends and family.
Hosted by the pro clima HUB and Education Manager, Matthew Cutler-Welsh, the formalities included an address from Pro Clima’s Founder and renowned building biologist, Lothar Moll, and the General Manager of Pro Clima New Zealand and Australia, Thomas van Raamsdonk. We were also privileged to be joined by the German Ambassador to New Zealand, Gerhard Thiedemann who did the honours and cut the ribbon!
Glimpse of the Future
Guests at the opening event were treated to a glimpse of what the pro clima HUB will look and feel like once construction is fully complete. We even ran our ‘Leaky Buildings 2.0’ session in the Seminar House to demonstrate the capability of the facility.
Our builders have done a fantastic job constructing the pro clima HUB to a very high standard not yet commonly seen in New Zealand (we aim to change that).
The Richtfest, traditional German ‘topping out’ ceremony was a highlight for many of our guests during the open day.
HUB for Learning
The pro clima HUB has already begun it’s life as a centre for learning. Guests and visitors have enjoyed seeing the details during the construction process and hosting our official opening prior to final completion provided extensive opportunities to literally see through the two buildings that make up the pro clima HUB.
Full completion of the construction stage is expected in early November 2017. From this time onwards, the pro clima HUB will be a fantastic place for learning, collaborating and networking.
