On May 5, Procore proudly opened its new Asia-Pacific headquarters in Sydney, reaffirming our ongoing commitment to the region. Five years since opening our first office in Australia, sustained growth in the local business led to the investment in a new, larger office space.
Combining global resources with local insights and relationships, business nearly doubled across Asia Pacific from 2020 to 2021. Our rapidly expanding local team continues to scale to meet the steady demand of the local construction industry. Looking to the future, Procore plans to create over 100 new jobs in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
Supporting Team Expansion
Procore’s new offices are set in the award-winning SubStation No.164 building, two adjacent historic Sydney sites that have been innovatively revitalised into a commercial and cultural space by Built. The world-class office facility in this iconic Sydney site spans 1,400 square metres over two floors, equipped with automated technology to support sustainability and the wellbeing of occupants. The internal fitout has drawn inspiration from Procore’s flagship US offices, while ensuring it is designed to meet the unique needs of the ANZ team.
“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,” commented Tom Karemacher, vice president APAC at Procore.
Most employees now prefer a hybrid working style, so we made a conscious decision to allow one desk for every two employees. Our people are our priority, and we want to promote everyone’s health and well-being during the workday.
“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 continued.
“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.”
Local Solutions Driving Market Growth
In addition to investing in this new office space, Procore is doubling down on our commitment to innovating new solutions that address the specific challenges faced by the construction industry in Australia and New Zealand. We’ve had global success with the solutions developed for the Australian market to date, including Correspondence, Action Plans, Quality Essentials, Document Control and Safety Essentials.
"PBS Building is thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with Procore. Having worked with the team for five years, we value Procore's commitment to local innovation and they will continue to be our preferred construction technology partner,” said Matthew Rayment, chief operations officer at PBS Building.
Our customers and partners continue to be a top priority, so our new Sydney offices include purpose-built spaces to entertain and showcase Procore solutions.
“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,” said Karemacher.
“We look forward to welcoming the Procore community to Clarence Street for years to come,” Karemacher concluded.
