• State Government saving $25m on offices

    With the final tenant about to relocate to Gordon Stephenson House (GSH) the State Government is on track to save up to $25million a year in office accommodation, Finance Minister Simon O’Brien announced today.

    “The consolidation of office accommodation is just one element of this Government’s Accommodation Master Plan,” Mr O’Brien said.

    “In March 2009, when Government was seeking to move from the Governor Stirling Tower (GST), it faced projected rental costs of about $750 a square metre for office accommodation in the CBD.  Under the master planning approach, the Government has been able to use its buying power and negotiate significantly lower rent costs, consolidating into fewer offices in the CBD and decentralising to metropolitan offices.
