Airey Consultants Ltd office fit-out

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — 8th Floor, 19-21 Como Street, Takapuna

We set out to modernise the interior and to create a functional layout using sustainable principles.

Green and white offices

After 20 years of working in offices with a solid concrete wall as a view, we decided to relocate our offices to the eighth floor of the Takapuna Towers high rise building with spectacular 360 degree views over greater Auckland.

The new offices were dated, with run-down carpets, ceiling tiles and no kitchen. We set out to modernise the interior and to create a functional layout using sustainable principles. The open-plan layout makes the maximum use of natural light from the windows, with glass partitions dividing meeting rooms and enclosed offices. All workspaces are located to have a view, which also ensures a pleasant work environment for all.

We were able to re-use, reduce and minimise in a number of clever ways. The carpet tiles in the lobby were raised and the concrete floor polished. Lifted carpet tiles were reused in areas where the carpet was worn and damaged. Damaged and stained ceiling tiles were painted or replaced as required.

Airey Consultants reception

The glass and frames of the old partitions and down lights and doors could be re-used.

Old aluminium partitions and defunct copper wires were recycled. The worn material on the desk dividers were stripped and relined.

Bright office reception

Final touches to the new interior included our bright Resene Environmental Choice approved Resene paint feature walls. The transformation was dramatic and adds to the uplifting and privileged feel of working in offices located in such beautiful surroundings.
