G.A.S. Offices – Auckland

Firm
  • Client G.A.S.,
  • Year 2017
  • Location Auckland, New Zealand,
  • Industry Oil,
  • DB Interiors has designed the new headquarters offices of petrol station company G.A.S. located in Auckland, New Zealand.

    G.A.S. Headoffice Auckland partnered with DB Interiors to complete a spatial design for their current offices, which resulted in the decision to relocate to a new office space in Kingsland. G.A.S. wanted to transform the way they worked from traditional working styles to an activity based working style. This improved their internal workflow and changed the culture from “them and us” to an inclusive, warm and buzzing culture. This also reflects the character of the building.

    Staff productivity and comfort was achieved in creative ways, by incorporating sit/stand desks, collaborative chat booths and a modern break out area. G.A.S branding was featured not only in the reception and waiting area, but also throughout meeting rooms and boardroom. A key area of concern was how owner/operators of the service stations would see the investment, leading us to design an area for owner/operators to be trained. We also incorporated multiple areas for private meetings and chat booths within the open office environment, to buy stakeholders confidence and impress third party suppliers. One of our favourite features is the modern SmartScreen hub – it keeps stats and information flowing to the team on a daily basis allowing engagement amongst the team and stakeholders.
