Two storeys of the office building will house the Department for Child Protection and Family Services (CPFS), while the other two floors will be used by City of Armadale staff.

The building, which looks across Memorial and Minnawarra parks, has a 4.5 star NABERS rating, a national rating system that measures a building’s environmental performance, changing rooms and bicycle storage facilities.

Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the new building will create a centralised location for services in the southeast corridor and also set the tone for future plans in the civic precinct.

‘The complex will bring an influx of people from the wider region into the City centre, creating a stimulus for local businesses and generating economic activity,’ he said.

‘It will also centralise access to services for members of the local community and service the surrounding communities.’
