Total Utilities’ big move for a growing team!

15 March 2024

Total Utilities is thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our journey: we’ve moved to a bigger and better office location in Ellerslie, Auckland.

Our team’s fantastic growth and expanding operations have necessitated a change in scenery, and we’re excited to share the details of our office relocation with you.

A space fit for growth & sustainability

Our new office, located at Level 2, 2 Kalmia Street, Ellerslie, has been carefully chosen to accommodate our growing team and support our commitment to sustainability.

With enhanced public transport options and a central location, it’s the perfect space for us to continue delivering exceptional service to our clients while fostering closer connections within the community.

We’re eager to settle into our new space and welcome clients and partners for visits and meetings.

Company Director, Chris Hargreaves says, “I’m pleased to report the move went very smoothly – lots of work done by many hands. It was a real team effort and everyone pitched in.”

Life changing benefits

He explains he was delighted with the immediate benefits of the move: “On my first day at the new office, I passed the motorway onramp and the sign said it would take 65 minutes to Mount Wellington, where our old office was based. I got on the train and it took me 32 minutes to get to Ellerslie. Not only that, but I sent around six emails and relaxed on my commute. Life changing!”

Chris also estimates that taking the train to the new office instead of driving to the old office results in a reduction of 1,510kg of C02e per year, which is a hugely impressive 62% reduction in commuting emissions. Savings will increase further—to nearly 2,000kg of C02e—when the Pukekohe to Papakura line is electrified later this year.

Jonathan Stewart, Total Utilities’ Data Wrangler, also achieves significant savings of around 1,900kg of C02e per year by catching a bus and a train from the North Shore, instead of driving. Across the whole team, the carbon savings are likely to be substantial.

Exciting times

Chris adds, “As we move into our new office, we want to extend a sincere thank you to all our customers for your ongoing support which has played a massive role in our success. We’re excited to keep moving forward together as we settle into our new space.
