Welcome to this quarters’ Business Update. The team have been busy with a range of exciting projects.
Gearing up for 2018!
The business is preparing itself for its next intake of residents from all over the country and abroad for Semester 1, 2018. It is a busy time for our teams, with marketing about to launch their Retention & Recruitment campaign initiatives (with a retention survey already in circulation), the CCV team preparing for the busy season ahead, and Village teams welcoming potential new residents at Open Days.
Finance kicking goals
The finance team has been busy closing off the books for year end and budgets have been approved after a successful round of budget challenges with our Villages. It has been a very busy time for all involved and we’d like to thank them for their hard work!
A fresh new look for Kowhai
We are excited to announce that we are undertaking an extensive refurbishment at our Kowhai Apartments at the University of Canterbury Village. The project will provide a fresh new look at Ilam and includes re-cladding, new insulation, double glazing (great to keep out the cold weather) and the installation of updated electrical appliances. The team at the village have done a great job in temporarily rehousing the residents and we look forward to welcoming them back to a revitalised Kowhai in 2018.
Otago Polytechnic Student Village is mobilising!
OPSV is a 231-bed development that will open on the Dunedin campus in February 2018. The Village is the first purpose built, on-campus student accommodation complex for Otago Polytechnic working in partnership with CLV. We will offer catered, dormitory style accommodation along with multi-bed and studio apartments, incorporating sustainable design initiatives and it will be one of the tallest cross laminated timber buildings in NZ. Applications open on 7th August and we are looking forward to welcoming all our new residents early in 2018.
