WorkSafe announces iconic building for Geelong

WorkSafe Victoria has today announced Melbourne-based developer Quintessential Equity as the winning tender to deliver its new headquarters in Geelong.

The $120 million project will provide a modern gateway to Victoria’s largest regional city with design features including a captivating external façade that merges the historic Dalgety & Co. building with a modern structure.

The contemporary commercial office will span across 14 levels and incorporate sustainable design by targeting a 6-star green star rating and 5 star NABERS rating.

Staff will begin transitioning to the region later this year with 150 employees to work out of the TAC head office at 60 Brougham Street. The remainder of staff will make the move in 2018 upon completion of the new headquarters.

WorkSafe Chief Executive Clare Amies joined Minister for Finance Robin Scott and stakeholders for the announcement at the proposed building site in Geelong today.

“This is a significant milestone in the relocation of our headquarters to Geelong and we’re very excited to start this journey with Quintessential Equity,” Ms Amies said. “The new headquarters at 1 Malop Street will house over 700 WorkSafe employees and contractors at its completion in 2018.

“This relocation will provide a great opportunity for WorkSafe to bring its staff together into a dynamic and inspiring working environment, and also revitalise the city centre of Geelong.”
