Now offering casual Drive Up parking and pre-book parking at this location. Located in Braddon only minutes away from the CBD and near light rail.
One location, two car parks with several very different functions – DIVVY’s smart parking management solutions take care of them all.
Client: AMES Australia
At 30-32 Prospect Street, in the heart of Box Hill’s up-and-coming business district, is the local branch of Australian training and settlement agency, AMES Australia. The building is also home to the Inner Eastern Melbourne branch of The Orange Door, a government-backed network that provides help for people experiencing family violence. DIVVY manages two car parks at Prospect Street – one for each group.
Getting the most out of a multipurpose car park
The AMES Australia Box Hill car park plays two roles – to provide parking for AMES Australia staff and fleet vehicles as well as paid public parking. When DIVVY took over the management of the car park in February 2023, the first step was to install boom gates.
The previous parking operator had been running a ‘pay and display’ public parking system in the car park, which was difficult to manage effectively in such a busy area where parking is hard to come by.
How to manage staff parking plus pre-booked and casual public parking in the same car park
Now, AMES Australia enjoys ultimate flexibility when it comes to their staff and fleet parking, thanks to the DIVVY staff parking management solution. AMES Australia groups its employees for parking purposes, allowing them to manage different levels of parking access quickly and easily. Members of one group book and pay for their onsite parking via the DIVVY app, while fleet cars have permanent parking access.
At the same time, DIVVY has made the management of the paid public parking at 30-32 Prospect Street more efficient and effective. Drivers can pre-book their parking via the DIVVY app or website, or they can take advantage of DIVVY’s Drive Up casual parking system.
Thanks to DIVVY’s push button technology, AMES Australia staff and pre-booked public parkers enjoy a ‘windows up’ parking experience. When drivers with a parking booking approach the car park entrance, they only need to tap a button in the DIVVY app on their phone to open the boom gate and enter the car park. Geolocation technology limits the push button function to drivers with a booking, and only when the driver is within close range of the car park.
Drivers without a booking can park at 30-32 Prospect Street with DIVVY’s Drive Up. They just tap their credit card, Apple Pay or Samsung Pay at the boom gate to gain entry. When it’s time to leave, another tap with the same payment method at the car park exit opens the boom gate, and they’re on their way. 30-32 Prospect Street is the first car park in Victoria to feature DIVVY’s Drive Up.
Convenient public parking in bustling Box Hill
Set just behind Box Hill’s main thoroughfare, Whitehorse Road, AMES Australia’s car park is perfectly positioned for employees from local workplaces, commuters catching the train from Box Hill Station, visitors and employees of Box Hill Central shopping centre, Box Hill Hospital or Epworth Eastern Hospital, and students and staff from the Box Hill Institute. It’s also an excellent overnight parking option for residents of local apartment buildings, given the lack of street parking in the area.
Putting safety and security at the forefront
Family support and safety hub The Orange Door also has a car park at 30-32 Prospect Street. In contrast to AMES Australia’s public car park, this car park is used only by The Orange Door’s staff and clients. Given the sensitive nature of the important work The Orange Door does, safety and privacy are paramount.
The Orange Door uses DIVVY’s Premium Pass Parking feature to ensure that only their staff and authorised visitors – and no one else – can access parking in their car park.
The Orange Door’s staff and visitors book their parking space via the DIVVY app or website, but the Premium Pass Parking feature means that they are the only ones who can do so because the parking is only visible and bookable for The Orange Door’s authorised clients.
This functionality allows The Orange Door to manage staff and visitor parking conveniently and efficiently while upholding the privacy and security levels their business and visitors need.
Clayton Abraham, Senior Facilities Manager for AMES Australia, says,
“The old pay-and-display parking system just wasn’t working for us in our Prospect Street car park. DIVVY’s versatile system, which offers both pre-booked and casual parking, gives us the flexibility we need in our car park while still ensuring parkers are paying correctly for their parking and not overstaying the time they’ve paid for. Meanwhile, the adaptability of the DIVVY staff parking management product allows our tenants, The Orange Door, to manage their client and visitor parking safely, securely, and easily.”

When Sandran Property Group needed a smart, streamlined building access system tailored to meet the needs of their security-conscious blue chip tenant, they approached DIVVY for a solution.
Client: Sandran Property Group
Property: 121-125 Henry Street, Penrith, NSW
Sandran Property Group owns 121-125 Henry Street, an A-grade commercial office building in the heart of Penrith’s rapidly gentrifying CBD. The building, which underwent a $35 million refurbishment in 2017, is home to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, as well as other premium tenants.
DIVVY has worked with Sandran at 121-125 Henry Street since 2018, providing simple and secure staff parking management. So when Sandran’s tenant, the ATO, requested a comprehensive, highly secure building access system, Sandran turned to DIVVY for the answer.
An inefficient and outdated building access system
Building access was once a piecemeal, disconnected affair at 121-125 Henry Street.
Employee access to the underground car park was successfully managed by DIVVY’s staff parking management system. But staff had to use a swipe card to access the ground floor from the car park. They then had to use a second swipe card to enter their office.
The ATO needed a smart, streamlined office access solution that took parkers all the way from the car park entrance to their desk. But, given the sensitive nature of the ATO’s work, any access control system needed to meet the ATO’s high-level, specialised security parameters.
The DIVVY solution
At the ATO’s request, DIVVY stepped in to provide the solution. Sandran Property Group gave the green light to install DIVVY’s Sammy access device in the lift foyer and integrate the DIVVY bookable assets system with the existing Schindler lift system. Now, office access for ATO staff is a breeze.
All they need to access their workplace is one DIVVY QR code. That code allows them to enter and exit the car park as well as call the lift to take them to the level on which they work. The DIVVY system gives building management complete oversight across who has entered the building via the car park, what time they entered, and which building levels they have accessed. The days of staff and management juggling several swipe card systems are long gone.
Eugene Chiew, Senior Property Manager at Sandran Property Group, says, “As a property manager, ensuring my tenants’ needs are met is my highest priority. Here at 121-125 Henry Street, we needed a building access system that would be smooth and easy for staff to use and management to run, while also meeting the high-level security requirements of our major tenant, the ATO.
The DIVVY system has done exactly that – simplified and streamlined building access at the same time as satisfying the ATO’s specific access security protocols. Having worked with DIVVY on staff parking management in my previous role at Knight Frank, I was confident they would deliver here at 121-125 Henry Street, and they did.”
What’s next for 121-125 Henry Street?
Car park access will soon be even simpler for staff at 121-125 Henry Street with the imminent installation of DIVVY’s push button technology. This will enable a ‘windows up’ parking experience for staff entering and exiting the car park. DIVVY’s push button technology opens car park entry and exit gates when authorised parkers touch a button in the DIVVY app on their phone. Geo-location technology ensures that access is limited to permitted parkers and only when they are within close range of the car park.
As the needs of commercial tenants become more specialised and individualised, demand for smart, connected access solutions that can be customised to meet a tenant’s requirements will only continue to grow.
To find out how we can help you meet your tenant’s needs, get in touch with our sales team today.

End of trip facilities are becoming increasingly common in Australian commercial buildings, with some states and territories going as far as legally mandating them. We find out what they are, who needs them and the best way to manage them.
What are end of trip facilities?
End of trip facilities (or EOTs) include changing rooms, showers, lockers and secure bicycle storage areas in a commercial building’s common area. They are designed to support people who cycle, walk or run to work or exercise during their lunch break. They’re also increasingly used by employees to freshen up after returning from a business trip or get ready for an evening function.
The benefits of end of trip facilities
Providing quality EOTs benefits individuals, businesses, building owners and the environment.
Because EOTs make it easier for people to exercise and engage in physical activity, they promote higher levels of health and wellbeing among workforces. This can, in turn, result in greater productivity and increased staff morale and retention.
Well-equipped, clean EOTs encourage people to use non-motorised transport to get to work, which is great for the environment, as well as fostering a positive corporate image. They can also increase a building’s Green Star rating and make it more attractive to prospective tenants.
What building owners need to know about end of trip facilities
Well-appointed EOTs are no longer an optional ‘nice to have’ feature in a commercial building. In competitive capital city property markets, they’re a must-have, and in some Australian states and territories, they’re now a legal requirement.
High-end buildings in the Sydney CBD have been focusing on luxe EOTs for several years now as building owners recognise the demand from corporate and government tenants. A 2015 report from Colliers International revealed the desire for EOTs was one of the major drivers of demand in Australian CBD property markets, and that appetite has only increased in recent years thanks, in part, to a COVID-inspired cycling boom.
Data from 2021 shows that cycling more than doubled across inner-city Sydney in the two years prior, and in April this year, the City of Sydney announced plans for a 250km network of strategic cycle paths across eastern Sydney. As more and more Sydney commuters choose to get to work by bike, the demand from commercial tenants for EOTs will only grow.
Meanwhile, in the ACT, recently passed legislation requires new buildings and those undergoing significant refurbishments to include EOTs by law. The new code, set to be introduced later this year, will see new commercial buildings, including takeaway food shops, funeral parlours, cinemas, and offices, required to provide EOTs. Existing buildings undergoing work affecting more than half their floor area will also be subject to the new code.
It’s a similar situation in Queensland, where the sustainable buildings development code requires all new major developments, as well as large-scale additions to existing significant buildings, to include EOTs. New developments with a floor area greater than 2,000 square metres, such as shopping centres, tertiary education facilities, commercial office buildings and hospitals, are affected. Refurbishments of existing major buildings that add 1,000 square metres or more of new floor space to the building must also provide EOTs.
How to make end of trip facility management easy with DIVVY technology
Of course, with the provision of EOTs comes the responsibility of managing them. A first-in, best-dressed approach is destined to fail – people need to know there will be a bike parking space and locker awaiting them when they arrive at the office, and they need to know their possessions are secure while they’re working.
The easiest and simplest way to manage EOTs is via a flexible booking system designed specially to manage shared assets, like DIVVY’s bookable assets system. DIVVY has taken its years of experience designing, installing and managing efficient and effective parking technology and access control systems and applied it to all bookable assets, including EOTs, meeting rooms, hot desks and shared workspaces.
Employees simply log onto the DIVVY portal and book their EOTs within the parameters set by the business. They then receive a QR code on their phone, which gives them access to the facilities they have booked. It’s that simple.
The DIVVY bookable assets system gives employees peace of mind, knowing their EOTs are booked and waiting for them when they get to work. They also know their belongings are secure because the only way the DIVVY booking system will release them is with their unique QR code.
And, of course, DIVVY’s booking system takes the burden of manual EOT management away from building management, admin and security teams. No more spreadsheets, granting and revoking access permissions from security cards, or dealing with frustrated staff who can’t access the facilities they need.
The same DIVVY booking system can be applied to office access, streamlining the process of access control, and reserving meeting rooms, turning an arduous process into an easy one and ensuring meeting rooms are used as efficiently as possible.
When applied across EOTs, office access, meeting rooms, and car parking, DIVVY technology creates a seamless, easy-to-use network across a business’s entire bookable assets portfolio.
