RAND RESCUE 0800 RAND RESCUE www.randrescue.com Full occupancy for Smales Farm By JODEAL CADACIO Smales Farm Technology Office Park is bucking the high premium office space vacancy rates in Auckland. It's a zero vacancy rate in the 10.8 hectare park in Takapuna and general manager Daniel Hen- derson says the green building investment is paying off for Smales Farm. He says the park is maintaining full occupancy despite vacancy rates of 12.4 percent on the Shore and 12 percent in the Auckland CBD. The figures are based on the 2010 annual report published by Bayleys Property Research that shows high vacancy rates across all grades of offices. Mr Henderson says the report says the economic recession forced many companies to downsize, resulting in office space vacancies. He says the demand for pre- mium office space like that which Smales Farm provides has been unaffected by the recession. There is demand in particular for buildings that incorporate green technologies to deliver a satisfying work environment and realise operating cost savings, he says. Smales Farm has been ahead of the wave when it comes to using green technology in its buildings, but the true value of green buildings is proving to extend far beyond substantial savings on power water costs,'' he says. Showcasing the park's array of green buildings is the Sovereign House which opened in October 2007 and has won multiple awards for its modern and sustainable features. The technology park is also home to TelstraClear, Air New Zealand, the New Zealand Trans- port Agency's national Traffic Operations Centre, ShoreCare, EDS and Toll among major tenants. Mr Henderson says property managers are now looking to weigh other success indicators such as staff retention and even company performance. Mr Henderson says the Bayleys report does have some silver linings in pointing to the recovery under way in the office sector.
