Turuki Healthcare Call Centre
Turuki Healthcare was established in 1995 to provide whanau-based health, wellness and social services to the South Auckland community. With clinics in Mangere and Panmure, Turuki is now one of the largest kaupapa Māori providers in Auckland and is also one of the three providers in the Kotahitanga Whānau Ora Collective.
Gaze was contracted to complete the design, procurement, construction and project management works for Turuki Healthcare's new call centre. Split into two phases, the first to be completed was the main bulk of the call centre. This open-plan office incorporates a lounge area that simultaneously acts as a breakout space and an informal meeting/ collaboration area. Meeting rooms, that can also be used as quiet workspaces, feature brightly coloured walls and are named after New Zealand native birds.
The second phase yet to be completed, will feature multifunctional spaces and create a welcoming place for the community to visit.
