Meridian Energy Moves to Auckland Airport

Meridian Energy Moves to Auckland Airport

Auckland Airport announced today that it has leased a whole floor in its Quad 5 office building to Meridian Energy. Meridian Energy will be moving its Auckland sales team to the airport at the end of the year.

The Quad 5 office building was built by Auckland Airport as part of its Quad office precinct – a high quality, cluster of office buildings within a pedestrian-friendly space. Quad 5 is already occupied by Harrison Grierson, Specsavers, BASF New Zealand and a Jetts Fitness gym.

Mark Thomson, Auckland Airport’s general manager of property, says, “The arrival of Meridian Energy reflects the airport business district’s growing position as a location of choice for companies seeking quality space, in an exceptional environment.”

“Our Quad precinct is extremely popular for its great staff amenities, which includes supermarkets, a bar and restaurants, mountain bike trails, running and walking trails, a sports field and golfing facilities. These are all within walking distance of the offices and make the Quad a unique place to work. The Quad is also home to ‘Te Kaitaka – The Cloak’, a visually striking property marketing and corporate function suite. It was designed by FearonHay and has been nominated as a finalist for an international architecture award, at the 2014 World Architecture Festival.”

“Occupancy of Auckland Airport’s $612 million property investment portfolio now stands at 99%, with all office facilities now leased. New property developments are expected to be announced in the coming months.”

Meridian Energy’s General Manager for Retail, Alan McCauley, says, “The new office provides more space for our growing Auckland-based sales team, and offers a convenient hub near the airport for staff and clients visiting from out of town.”
