The Powerco Network Operations Centre (NOC) is a dynamic example of workplace design where critical technical purpose is seamlessly integrated with Powerco’s ongoing development of collaborative and culture-enhancing work spaces.
As a 24-hour operating workplace, The Powerco NOC required design to encourage high levels of productivity at all hours, as well as being both safe and comfortable. To achieve this, the NOC is integrated on site, in a campus style working environment. This design facilitates connectivity, and inter-team engagement whilst ensuring workplace flexibility for the future needs of the business.
Because this site provides electicity to over 300,000 homes throughout New Zealand, as well as over 100,000 gas connections, infrastructural resilience in the face of a disastrous event is key. Achieving mission critical infrastructural design requires special attention to robust building performance, and tailored solutions. This building meets IL4 building performance criteria, maintaining critical post-disaster operation.
By transforming their workplace to facilitate and elevate their company culture, Powerco is prepared and ready to face the challenges of tomorrow.
