ATEED – Helping Auckland to thrive
In New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) helps to create a future of prosperity and opportunity. As Auckland Council’s economic growth agency, ATEED is tasked with promoting and advocating for Auckland nationally and globally as a place to work, invest, study and visit. Ultimately their objective is to help this dynamic region thrive and succeed.
A smarter, more sustainable building
At the end of 2018, ATEED moved its 200 staff to the Spark Building near Auckland’s waterfront to save on operational costs, and to be closer for collaboration with many of their industry partners and customers. The 5 star energy rated building also matches the Auckland Council’s sustainability priorities.
Greater flexibility = increased efficiency
Not only does the new building save ATEED millions of dollars in lease costs, it also increases their efficiency and effectiveness. Work settings are designed to accommodate differing styles of work in an effort to boost employee productivity. Embracing this more agile way of working has allowed the organisation to reduce the amount of floor space it requires.
ATEED is also better able to meet its business customers’ needs by inviting them to share and utilise the space.
