FNB unveils its new regional office in Bloemfontein

First National Bank (FNB), the Kavod Trust and Councillor Moeng, Member of the Mayoral Committee, recently opened FNB’s new regional offices in the Bloemfontein central business district.

The new 8 284m² building known as First Place, Bloemfontein consolidates seven offices in the region and now accommodates all FNB, WesBank, RMB and Ashburton businesses.

During his keynote address, Councillor Moeng congratulated FNB and the developers for their continued commitment to the growth of the province.

Stephen Gooch, FNB Free State Regional Head, said that First Place Bloemfontein is owned and developed by the Kavod Trust and phase one of the development was funded by FNB.

“The building has been designed to be fully functional for the bank’s purposes and already stands as a landmark with five levels that can accommodate more than 400 employees,” said Gooch.

“The cosmopolitan building designed by Bomax Architects will give clients and staff access to meeting rooms, as well as a training centre. It has contemporary design elements and eco-friendly features that maximise natural light.

“As part of a long-term commitment to develop the community and continue growing the province, local suppliers in Bloemfontein – many of which are FNB clients – were employed in the construction of the building.”

Joe Chemaly of the Kavod Trust thanked everyone who had been instrumental in making this project a success. She emphasised that without the support of the community, valued stakeholders and local government, the launch of First Place would not have been possible.

“Free State is one of the richest agricultural provinces in the country and has the potential to make an even greater contribution to the economy. We encourage corporate South Africa to continue investing in the sustainable and responsible development of Mangaung and the Free State Province at large,” said Gooch.
