We recently completed a project for Allegion in Auckland. Allegion is a global pioneer in seamless access, with its security products and solutions sold in 130 countries and more than 11,000 employees around the world.
When Allegion Auckland looked at its long-term need to bring together office space, warehousing, logistics, and operations, it landed on a purpose-built facility, located on the same site as their original building.
Project planning began in 2017 for this custom build and the team at Europlan in Auckland worked closely with Williams Architects in the early phases of the workspace design.
Our range of Maari Chairs were a pivotal product in the overall colour story, influencing screen fabric and finish selection, ensuring the colour palette complemented the range of products and finishes across the floorplate.
For the project management deliverables, we worked alongside Brendon Simpson, Managing Director of Allegion (New Zealand). It was important we paid close attention to detail and hit all project milestones, including cost, to deliver a space that Brendon and the Allegion team could be really proud of.
The building is positioned to connect with expansive views of the natural environment and harness spectacular amounts of natural light.
The result is a beautiful workspace, and highly functioning operations facility – with plenty of scope for future flex as the needs of the business grow and change.
We spoke with Brendon Simpson at Allegion about how the new facility has impacted the team at Allegion, and some of his highlights from the project process.
