Ryrie HQ: Contractor announced and new plans released

Monaco Hickey has been announced as the preferred construction contractor for the redevelopment of our Ryrie Street office complex.

Monaco Hickey will work with us and our architects, GHD, over the coming months to refine the design and identify any potential cost savings.

Our planning permit has been approved by the City of Greater Geelong and construction is scheduled to begin in August.

 
Updated designs

Our architects have created new photo-realistic renders depicting the new office complex from the front (Ryrie Street) and rear (Aitchison Place).

The updated plan features a redesigned western infill, swept back at ground level to maximise the forecourt and mirror the reverse flying buttresses of the state government building on Little Malop Street to the north.

A regional boost

Up to 100 jobs are expected to be created during construction.

Bringing our corporate activities under one roof will boost efficiencies and productivity. We will save up to 45% on operational, maintenance and energy costs. We’ll reap the benefits of reduced travel time and a connected, collaborative, modern workspace.

Alongside other exciting infrastructure projects like the new Geelong Library, we are looking forward to breathing new life into the city’s cultural and business precincts.
