Construction starts on Port Adelaide office
6 February 2017
Work has begun on a new office building in Port Adelaide which will house more than 500 public servants, helping to revitalise the Port, grow its daytime economy and support construction jobs.
Developer epc.Pacific Pty Ltd is developing the new building to be leased by the State Government, with a forecast value of more than $40 million.
The building at the corner of Nile and Robe streets will improve the vibrancy of Port Adelaide and provide an economic boost to local businesses, in keeping with the Government’s Our Port policy.
The building will consist of:
- ground floor retail space
- two levels of car parking accommodating 142 cars
- three levels of office accommodation
The new building has been designed to achieve a minimum 5 Star Green Star fit out rating and a minimum 5 Star energy and water consumption rating.
The project, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of next year, is being conducted in line with the State Government’s Industry Participation Policy, which maximises the benefit for local businesses and workers, and the Steel Procurement Policy, requiring all steel to meet Australian standards.
It also supports the Northern Economic Plan, which is a blueprint for a prosperous northern Adelaide, focused on creating jobs and empowering local communities.
The Northern Economic Plan has been developed by the State Government in partnership with the Port Adelaide Enfield, Salisbury, and Playford Councils, along with industries, businesses, and the community.
