Europlan is the National Furniture Partner and single source supplier for BizDojo and has been since 2014. This unique and symbiotic partnership provides space to test how our products function in a live environment.
These Coworking showrooms feature open plan workspace, bookable and free range meeting spaces, and conference and event facilities. They showcase the design and clever engineering behind Europlan’s furniture platforms and highlight our specialised offer of workplace strategy and the ability to workshop a space that is still in the early phases of inception.

Adding value to the partnership
We act as specialists and advisors to BizDojo when it comes to space planning and furniture selection. They are the first to experience new ways of working and the first to test new products as we bring them into the spaces. Europlan places much emphasis on seeking out and sharing knowledge. BizDojo spaces benefit from this as our learning about workspaces evolves.
In the early stages of the partnership up until 2020, our Wellington and Christchurch Teams worked from BizDojo spaces and used them as live showrooms. This allowed us to get a sense of the success our strategies delivered and provide ongoing support to the partnership.
Flexible floor plate
The furniture selection and supply are one of the key pillars that underpin the success of these spaces. It works well because it’s attractive, agile and reconfigurable. The products meet the budget requirements of the BizDojo and because of the flexible nature are interchangeable across all sites and furniture can be redeployed based on need.
Managing acoustics in large open plan work spaces requires a savvy approach to noise solutions, particularly when you add fully functioning kitchens with Espresso Machines. BizDojo have bought their own ideas and blended them with Europlan solutions and collectively we’ve adopted the following solutions to successfully manage noise pollution in these spaces:
Acoustic Pods – Quiet Revolution & Air3 Pods
BizDojo sites all utilise music to create sound masking
Acoustic treatments on ceilings, meeting room walls & carpet tiles
Acoustic Soft Seating in high traffic areas and in social spaces
Nationwide Project Management
Our partnership began in 2014 and over that time we have applied our standard project management procedures to all sites. Europlan has a sound yet simple methodology in place to manage projects. This methodology has scalability, and will be adapted to suit the size and complexity of the project.
