Business Profile – Int. Workspaces – Lifting the game in office fitouts

Int. Workspaces specialises in the specification, design, supply and installation of office spaces and furniture throughout New Zealand. Owned by Isaac and Tarryn Scott Int. Workspaces client base includes local councils, schools, government and corporations. Int. also have a specialised Library Division which is a preferred supplier for most local councils throughout New Zealand.

The process involves a detailed discussion with the client, a workplace visit and a chat about their needs and wants. int.workspaces will then design a layout which is presented in 3D form. Once the client is happy with the design a quote is prepared. The furniture and fittings will be supplied and installed and the client and employees can enjoy a brand new, comfortable, fully functional office space.

Int. Workspaces was called on to assist a large number of local businesses like Higgins Contractors, Ziwi and Ravensdown following Cyclone Gabrielle in February 2023. It helped that Isaac and Tarryn had an internal design, specification and installation team, and with businesses looking for assistance, Int. was able to lean on its expertise to provide a number of services to ensure each individual unique requirements were met.

Given the varied destruction caused by Cyclone Gabrielle each client had its own challenges to face in the days and months following. Int.’s ability to pivot to meet these challenges meant that businesses had a smooth transition into temporary spaces and then through to rebuilt spaces. Int’s assistance ranged from creation of asset registers for insurance purposes, temporary furniture, and office relocations for short term solutions through to design, specification, and installation of office fittouts following the rebuild of premises.

Niki Russell of Higgins Contractors Limited said team at Int.workspaces stepped up to refit their offices in Awatoto.

“It has been great to use a local business where their knowledge and experience has been fundamental in making this whole process easier.

“Having someone local has also meant that one on one meetings could be held where decisions about furniture or colour choices could be made on the spot, as well as having them on hand to do measure ups. Thank you, Team Int. workspaces,” Niki says.

Ravensdown was also significantly impacted, losing its admin building in Awatoto, forcing them into a makeshift Portacom village.

“Six months later we finally had a temporary office and we were introduced to Int. Workspaces by our project team. Int.workspaces provided furniture that best suited our workspace with options that aligned with our corporate branding. Being local meant we could visit their showroom to view samples and they even helped us move in. Their level of service meant we could carry on with business without the added stress of relocating and we now have a lovely space to work in,” said Tania Smith.


Ziwi had only opened their modern facility in Awatoto when the cyclone struck. They had worked with Int.workspaces for the initial fit out and was able to call on their services again.

Hannah Christensen of Ziwi Pets says “We are extremely grateful for the exceptional support provided by Int. Workspaces during the challenging time post Cyclone Gabriele. ZIWI Limited
(“ZIWI”), has always been very pleased to partner with Int. Workspaces during our formation in Hawkes Bay.

“However, following the February floods that damaged our offices, Int. Workspaces reached out and went above and beyond – not only offering temporary workspace for our people who were displaced but also by swiftly providing temporary furniture to ensure our teams could resume operations promptly where possible. “Throughout the rebuild and reopening process, the collaboration between ZIWI and Int. Workspaces has been seamless.

Both teams have been working closely to compile asset registers and replacement value quotes for our insurers, demonstrating both parties’ commitment to ensuring a smooth recovery process.

“What truly sets Int. Workspaces apart is their dedication to addressing immediate needs while assisting for the long-term. Int. Workspaces played a crucial role in setting up temporary offices for ZIWI efficiently, as we embarked on the cyclone rebuild and this partnership continues in our ongoing growth aspirations.

“We truly value Int. Workspaces in their expertise in designing and specifying workplace furniture, cafeteria furniture, and hospitality equipment – their expertise and experience is invaluable. Int. Workspaces not only provided a physical space to work but has become a trusted partner in our journey to recovery and for future projects in Hawke’s Bay and beyond (they’re national thank goodness!).

“Their professionalism, efficiency, and attention to detail have left a lasting positive impact on our organisation. Without hesitation ZIWI recommends the services of Int. Workspaces to any business in need of workspace solutions and support for day-to-day operations, growth and during challenging times,” says Hannah.

While int.workspaces services the whole of New Zealand, Hawke’s Bay is the hub of the business and it’s here that equipment is assembled and from there it’s transported to site, installed, wiring completed so clients have a fully operational workplace environment to move into.

Isaac and the team welcome inquiries from new and existing clients and look forward to working with you to ensure everyone has an integrated, intuitive, intelligent workspace. Their showroom is located at 407 Eastbourne Street West.
