Project Value:       Undisclosed
Sector:                    Commercial/Industrial
Completion:          2026

The headquarters for Fisher and Paykel is a brownfield development and is designed around a comprehensive sustainability strategy. Key focus areas are low (whole of life) carbon development, renewable energy and energy efficiency, water management and water sensitive design and staff wellbeing.

The Home building, a CLT structure, provides the administration, research, design and product development spaces. The spatial planning will allow the company to implement a hybrid working model, and a focus on providing a balance between self-managed and collaborative working spaces.

    The Shed building, also a CLT structure, will house the workshops, laboratories and testing facilities across two levels. The building will be constructed from robust and durable materials with a lightweight roof. Workshops, test labs and machine rooms are designed as workplace pods with flexible working areas and circulation through the central space.

    The Garage provides dedicated covered parking facilities and will be designed to suit the hybrid working model by supporting appropriate methods of travel for staff. This building provides a strong visual presence to the East of the site and adjacent Southern Motorway, which will be enhanced with the use of green walls.
