Procore Technologies, a global provider of construction management software, has announced the opening of its new Asia-Pacific headquarters in Sydney.

The continued investment in the region follows significant local demand, with business nearly doubling across Asia Pacific from 2020 to 2021, the company states.

Five years since opening its first office in Australia, the investment in a new, larger space reflects the company's ongoing commitment to Sydney as its regional headquarters, Procore states.

The company's rapidly expanding local team continues to grow 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.

Procore vice president APAC Tom Karemacher says, “As both the business and the team have rapidly expanded, we 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.

Procore's new offices are set in SubStation No.164, two adjacent historic Sydney buildings that have been remade into a commercial and cultural space by Built. The office facility spans 15,000 square feet over two floors, equipped with automated technology to support sustainability and the wellbeing of occupants.

Completed by Belvia, the internal fitout 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.

Karemacher comments, “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.

“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.

Built director small works and ACT John de Smet says, “The team at Built was delighted to be able to deliver a first class fitout for Procore in our 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."

In addition to investing in this new office space, Procore is doubling down on its commitment to innovating new solutions that address the specific challenges faced by the construction industry in Australia and New Zealand, the company states.

The company has had global success with the solutions developed for the Australian market to date, including Correspondence, Action Plans, Quality Essentials, Document Control and Safety Essentials.

Key reference customers for Procore in ANZ include SHAPE, Meriton, Charter Hall and PBS Building. The ongoing demand for Procore's solutions is supported by a growing partner ecosystem, with nearly 350 integrations now available on Procore's App Marketplace.

Karemacher concludes, “Procore exists to improve the lives of everyone in construction. The enthusiasm of our local customers and partners over the past five years is a real testament to the Procore platform and our team's ability to innovate and solve for local challenges.

"The design of the new offices includes purpose-built spaces to entertain our customers and partners and showcase the solutions we have developed for them. We look forward to welcoming the Procore community to Clarence Street for years to come."
