On Thursday, June 30, we had the grand opening of our new Wellington Office Design Studio. It was attended by about 150 of our valued friends and colleagues and was a great event to launch the brand new space and an invigorated S&T. The fitout has been awarded a 6 Green Star rating by the New Zealand Green Building Council – the first historic building in New Zealand to attain this level, the highest possible under Green Star and represents true world leadership.

“Creating a 6 Star working environment for our own people demonstrates the standard we actively pursue in all our design projects. Ensuring the built environment has sustainability at its core is our contribution to future generations who live, work and play in our buildings. We also set out to prove that 6-Stars can be achieved on a restricted project budget and is attainable with the right design approach.” – Murray Pugh, S&T Chief Executive
