Architect:  Avery Associates Team Architects and Location Group


The EMA Building (Employers and Manufacturers Association) now has a

striking new head office and conference facility on a prominent site on

Auckland’s Khyber Pass Road.

It was planned in four discrete stages to maintain a functional

working environment for the EMA during the construction process.  It involved

the demolition of seven buildings, creative rework of a 1920’s industrial building,

A partial refurbishment of the existing former EMA offices and a new four-level

head office. The new EMA Business Hub building creates a gateway into the site

via a two storey void. This leads onto a public semi-enclosed courtyard with the

Business Perk café set within its 80-year old industrial portals.  The upper levels

of this 1920’s warehouse have been transformed into a flexible, modern conference

/training facility with a variety of seminar spaces and breakout areas.
