- BEST Awards Finalist : Offices & Workplace Environments
We were proud to work closely with the Tax Management NZ team with the design and delivery of their new head office at 23 Custom street, Auckland. We shared their passion for creating a workplace that ensured people and the environment were at the heart of every decision. The result is a testament to that passion and ambition to build a more sustainable future for Aotearoa. We are proud of our team members for creating an open, inviting environment that has been “designed to limit the impact on future generations”.
Materials used in the new space have been chosen with sustainability in mind. TMNZ’s new home features Jacobsen’s carpets made from recycled drinking bottles, Tarkett hard floors manufactured from recycled PVC, and Green Tag Certified Autex Cube ceiling tiles, made with at least 40 percent recycled materials.
We selected sustainably-sourced mataī joinery and panels, and recycled rimu tables. We also chose sustainable furniture fabrics for every chair and stool.
No detail was too small; desktop surfaces at TMNZ are now made of all-natural linoleum, produced from pure oxidised vegetable linseed oil and natural pine rosin. We also made use of recycled products, including a reused office pod that hosts our breakout meetings.
The office was designed for TMNZ people. Collaborative spaces and new technology enable them and customers to work together regardless of where they are in New Zealand. Technology including whiteboard cameras, immersive collaboration spaces and fully cable-free working ensure they are more connected than ever and reduce the need for unnecessary travel.
