136 Fanshawe Street
Auckland, New Zealand
Meeting the demand for 6 Green Star-rated office space in Auckland's CBD.
Leading New Zealand property developer Mansons TCLM has recently opened a contemporary, 6 Green Star-rated commercial office tower development at 136-142 Fanshawe Street in Auckland’s CBD. Providing over 19,000 square metres of modern office space and with a seismic rating of 100 %NBS, the building features a large internal atrium, interconnecting air bridges and the provision for ground floor retail spaces to support the office tenancies.
A key success factor for the project is the building’s ability to attract and retain a variety of A-grade commercial tenants. The building’s design needed to be carefully considered to ensure it provides both large, open spaces and supports a variety of modern working practices.
Given the immense impact of commercial buildings on the environment, a key focus of the project has been to create a building with a high sustainability rating to support Mansons TCLM’s commitment to the environment. Throughout the building’s design, development and construction, Mansons TCLM have concentrated in particular on reducing waste, greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption levels. The structure of the towers consists of eccentrically braced frames and concrete shear wall structures, reducing construction costs and the number of concrete beams required.
The Fanshawe Street Office Towers opened in late 2021.

The Calibre team has been exceptional. In a truly testing year and on a complex build, they found and delivered structural design solutions and then worked with our construction teams on site to ensure that these were implemented correctly and efficiently. Calibre has worked proactively and collaboratively to help ensure the successful delivery of this commercial construction project.
