CLIENT: 2 DEGREES
Outgrowing its premises in Newmarket and moving to a state-of-the-art space in the Auckland CBD was all part of an exciting journey for 2 Degrees who are New Zealand’s fastest growing full-service telco. This office move symbolises 2 Degrees’ continued success to disrupt and redefine New Zealand’s telecommunications sector as it fights for fair to make New Zealand a better place to live.
The building itself is a world-leader in terms of environmental and sustainable design and is one of Auckland’s (and New Zealand’s) first 6-Star Greenstar rated buildings, with a seismic rating of 100% NBS.
Agile’s Building Services and Acoustics design helped the base building to achieve a six-star rating under the New Zealand Green Building Council’s Green Star programme while 2 Degrees has achieved its goal of becoming New Zealand’s first WELL Certification from the International WELL Building Institute. Achieving WELL certification required 2 Degrees to meet standards measuring 108 different wellbeing features covering: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community.
As well as achieving WELL certification, 2degrees’ new office has built in a 5G ready, state-of-the-art Ericsson in-building radio solution to deliver world class connectivity to our people and customers at our new premises. This will provide a step change in terms of speed and capacity.
