Five years since opening its first office in Australia, Procore Technologies has invested in a flexible and collaborative new working environment in a historic Sydney building which is built for true scale.
As most employees now prefer a hybrid working style, the company made a conscious decision to allow one desk for every two employees, and ensure all meeting and event spaces could provide a great experience both in person and virtually.
The new offices are set in SubStation No.164, two adjacent historic Sydney buildings that have been innovatively revitalised into a commercial and cultural space by Built.
The office facility in this iconic Sydney site spans 1,393 square metres over two floors, equipped with automated technology to support sustainability and the wellbeing of occupants.
The internal fit-out has drawn inspiration from the company’s flagship US offices in Carpinteria, California and Austin, Texas, while ensuring it meets the unique needs of the Asia-Pacific team.
Tom Karemacher, vice president APAC at Procore said the substation is a special, historical development which celebrates Sydney’s heritage, at the same time as showcasing the vision, skill and innovation of the local construction industry.
“We have also acknowledged the traditional owners of the land, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, by choosing native language names for meeting rooms and commissioning indigenous artwork to decorate the spaces,” he said.
John de Smet, Director Small Works and ACT at Built said a shared commitment to collaboration and forward thinking made the journey from design of the space through to handover a “rewarding experience for all stakeholders”.
Karemacher said the design of the new offices includes purpose-built spaces to entertain customers and partners and showcase the solutions developed for them.
“We look forward to welcoming the Procore community to Clarence Street for years to come,” Karemacher concluded.
