AUCKLAND COUNCIL’S ECONOMICAL NEW HEADQUARTERS

 

The Auckland Council has recently spent $104 million on purchasing the existing ASB headquarters on Albert St in central Auckland.  The 30-storey building will bring seven separate Council offices together under one roof, under the premise that it will save Council up to $2.7 million a year in travel and planning costs. Auckland Council Chief Executive Doug McKay states, “This purchase will enable council to house more staff in a single building, saving employees’ time and transportation between council offices, and allowing our people to work smarter for the long-term benefit of Aucklanders and the region.” The Civic building where staff are currently based accommodates 560 people whereas the new headquarters will be able to provide for up to 2,400 staff members as well as 1,200 sq m of meeting and function space. Council will begin relocating their employees from late 2013 onwards. An interior designer will be appointed in due course to design the various fitouts for each floor. For all the details follow J141728.
