As many of our work force are moving to ‘working from home’, we are seeing people experiencing frustration with their ‘new’ work environment.
Common issues that people are finding frustrating and impacting their productivity include:

- Slow internet
- Poor WI-FI service, weak signal
- Power points not where you want them to be
- Poor lighting

We appreciate this is a new environment and that they do not design most homes for a ‘work from home’ situation. It is not surprising that this could frustrate you, as you test out your home for working for the very first time, and that you can see some areas that you could improve to make this experience easy and your work efficient.

AB Electrical want to help our community and are offering free estimates and 20% discounts.

AB Electrical would like to extend an offer to North Shore based customers who are looking to improve their ‘work from home’ environment:

1 Free on-site review and quote.
2 Consultation at our showroom with a full range of working down lights, power points & switches.
3 20% discount on materials and labour for jobs booked before 30 April 2020.

Mayor Phil Goff today announced the temporary closure of libraries and a number of cultural institutions across the city.

The Museum’s Chief Executive Dr David Gaimster said “Auckland Museum is aligned with the Auckland Councils efforts to limit the transmission of the COVID -19 coronavirus. We will close our doors today at 5pm and will review our position regularly as new information from Health Officials comes to hand.”

“This was not an easy decision,” says Gaimster. “Auckland Museum has a role in the community to provide a sense of trust and continuity in times of uncertainty. However for the health and wellbeing for our visitors, our people and communities it has been necessary to make this difficult decision.”

The Museum will continue to operate behind the scenes undertaking the full range of its non-public facing activities such as caring for collections and taonga, research, digital and online initiatives, preparation of exhibitions and development of public programmes, planning and conservation.

Dr. Gaimster says while the Museum building is closed, it can still be visited online.

“Stay in touch with us at aucklandmuseum.com and we’ll keep you informed. Connect with us on our social media channels where we will bring you inspiring stories of our Museum, its collections and people,” he says.

“We don’t know yet when we will be able to re-open our doors, but we look forward to welcoming visitors back when we can,” says Dr. Gaimster.
