Sustainability Approach
Our approach to sustainability is deeply integrated into every phase of our project delivery —from initial concept to final execution. We consider every element through the lens of environmental impact, ensuring that our design and materials choices align with your sustainability goals. Our collaboration with PMG Funds exemplifies this approach, achieving an impressive 44% reduction in fit-out emissions, thereby not only meeting but surpassing their sustainability expectations.
Case Study: PMG Funds - A Model of Success

In our work with PMG Funds, one of New Zealand’s leading property funds management firms, we showcased how aligned values in sustainability can lead to outstanding results. PMG Funds’ commitment to being a carbon-zero business echoes our own, and through our joint efforts using the Spaceworks Carbon Calculator, we have set new benchmarks for the industry. This successful reduction in emissions demonstrates the tangible benefits of our collaboration, leading to enhanced sustainability credentials for PMG.

‘’Spaceworks exceeded our expectations with their innovative Carbon Calculator, surpassing our sustainability fit-out goals. Sustainability is a cornerstone of our business, as we are net carbon zero organisation. Our focus is to showcase the impact of sustainable practices on base builds and landlord fit outs, setting high standards for our tenants right from the beginning, and Spaceworks has been instrumental in helping us towards this goal’’. – Lloyd Clark, Asset Manager, PMG.

Carbon v Waste

In the quest for sustainability within the built environment, addressing both carbon emissions and waste management is crucial. These are not isolated challenges but interconnected aspects of environmental impact.

Effective sustainability practices should equally prioritise carbon management and waste reduction.
With fitouts having an average life cycle of 7 years before an element of partial or full demolition, this seemingly small area of construction has significant impacts.

• 17000 tonnes of construction demolition waste is tipped daily in New Zealand
• Construction and demolition waste constitutes over 33% of the waste in Class 1 landfills in New Zealand
• The built environment in NZ is responsible for 16-20% of all carbon emissions
• The built environment contributes to approximately 39% of global carbon emissions
