Te Kupenga | Auckland, New Zealand

This building isn’t just helping to mitigate our impact on the environment – it also pays homage to the historical Whenua, an 1800s busy fishing hub and place of trade in New Zealand 🇳🇿

Built on the former site of a petrol service station in Auckland, the seven-floor Te Kupenga (meaning “fishing net” in Māori) is a sustainable model for all of real estate to follow.

Te Kupenga has achieved a 6 Green Star – Office As Built NZGBC
certification 🏆 among other awards for its highly environmental design. This includes a rooftop equipped with solar panels and rainwater harvesting, while previously situated petrol pumps were replaced with a basement holding 10 rapid charging docks for electric vehicles, 106 bike parks and modern end of trip facilities 🚴

As Vicki Caisley, People & Strategy Officer of tenant  puts it:

“It’s pretty cool to see the building living and breathing in such a way and it’s a great reminder of our responsibility as a tenant as to how we impact the utilities being consumed. It fits nicely with our overall #ESG agenda and ensures we’re making a strong contribution towards climate change.”

Hats off to these and all other #buildingheroes
