Procore Technologies has announced the opening of its new Asia-Pacific headquarters in Sydney, five years since opening its first office in Australia.
The company’s expanding local team is growing in response to sustained customer growth across APAC in 2021. To scale the business and meet the continued demand of the local construction industry, Procore has plans to create over 100 new jobs in ANZ.
Tom Karemacher, Vice President APAC at Procore said the business needed a flexible and collaborative new working environment that is built for true scale.
“Procore understands that most employees now prefer a hybrid working style, so we made a conscious decision to allow one desk for every two employees, and ensure all meeting and event spaces could provide a great experience both in person and virtually. We hope to attract and retain the brightest talent on Australian shores,” Karemacher said.
Procore’s new offices are set in SubStation No.164, two adjacent buildings that construction company Built has turned into a commercial and cultural space.
The office facility spans 15,000 square feet over two floors, equipped with automated technology to support sustainability and the wellbeing of occupants. Belvia completed the internal fitout and has drawn inspiration from Procore’s flagship US offices in Carpinteria, California and Austin, Texas, while ensuring it is designed to meet the unique needs of the ANZ team.
“The substation is a special, historical development that Procore was drawn to because it celebrates Sydney’s heritage, at the same time as showcasing the vision, skill and innovation of the local construction industry,” Karemacher said.
“We have also acknowledged the traditional owners of the land, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, by choosing native language names for meeting rooms and commissioning indigenous artwork to decorate the spaces. We are excited to gather, collaborate and continue to grow in our dynamic new Asia-Pacific headquarters.”
John de Smet, Director Small Works and ACT at Built said the team was delighted to be able to deliver a first-class fitout for Procore in the award-winning SubStation No.164 building.
“The synergy of working with the Procore team was evident from day one with our shared commitment to collaboration and forward thinking which made the journey from design of the space through to handover a rewarding experience for all stakeholders,” he said.
