In early 2013, the NSW Government endorsed the relocation of the Ministry, Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) and NSW Treasury (Treasury) to 52 Martin Place, Sydney. Property NSW oversaw the implementation of this $45-million project in conjunction with NSW Public Works.
The consolidation and relocation of offices and staff provided $90 million in savings in rental costs over the initial term of the lease; transitioned DPC and Treasury from a very traditional static work environment to a modern agile workplace; and delivered 5000m² of base building refurbishment and 20,000m² of specialised fitout in an occupied building within tight budgetary and time constraints.
Completed in 2015, the project designed by Nettleton Tribe Architects saw the refurbishment of 20 floors of office space to accommodate over 1,250 staff. The new offices are modern and collaborative, and allow staff to choose adaptive workspaces to suit their requirements.
Maxton Fox was awarded the contract to manufacture and supply commercial furniture and joinery. Working closely with Nettleton Tribe and ADCO Construction, Maxton Fox supplied Kontakt sit to stand workstations and custom joinery.
