The California, US-based global provider of construction management software, Procore Technologies, has opened a new Asia Pacific (APAC) headquarters in Sydney, Australia. The company said its continued investment in the region follows significant local demand, with business nearly doubling across APAC from 2020 to 2021.
Five years since opening its first office in Australia, the investment in a new, larger space demonstrates Procore’s ongoing commitment to Sydney as its regional headquarters. According to the company, its 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.
Tom Karemacher, vice president APAC at Procore, said, “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 revitalised into a commercial and cultural space. The office facility spans 15,000 sq ft over two floors, equipped with automated technology to support sustainability and the wellbeing of occupants.
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 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.
“Procore exists to improve the lives of everyone in construction,” stressed Mr Karemacher. “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.”
