Waste Management Headquarters, Auckland

the project 

Approximately 4,000m² of commercial office space including a staff café and social hub alongside approximately 4,000m² of industrial workshop areas plus a large yard for bins and truck parking.  The building is currently going through certification to be 5 Star Green Star rated and is a pilot project for the newly created Design and As-Built rating tool that allows all building types including mixed use buildings and sites such as this one to be rated.  It is likely to be the first certified rated project using this tool in New Zealand.  The project was designed under the Australian version of the tool while the NZGBC adapted the tool for NZ. 

Our role 

Cosgroves were engaged to provide mechanical, electrical, hydraulics and Fire Engineering design services as well as Environmentally Sustainably Design consultancy services including compilation and submission for 5 Star Green Star Rating.   We worked closely with the NZGBC throughout the design process to clarify New Zealand adaptations of the Australian tool until the New Zealand version of the tool was released when the project was in construction.
