Global IT services provider CSC will consolidate its Canberra operations at 12 Brindabella Circuit, Brindabella Business Park from mid-June this year for a seven year lease, centralising around 150 staff from offices in Barton and Northbourne Avenue.
The CSC consolidation follows recent tenancy announcements by two of the ‘big four’ global accounting and consulting firms already in the business park: Deloitte will consolidate its Canberra operations on a long term lease at 8 Brindabella Circuit from August this year, and KPMG has just renewed its lease on 20 Brindabella Circuit.
Canberra Airport Head of Property Richard Snow said organisations believed the airport precinct was an excellent base to work from, particularly those dealing with government.
“It’s a great vote of confidence in our product and shows when you offer quality and service, clients respond positively.
“CSC is one of the largest IT companies in Australia and a significant private sector tenant in Canberra. They will be a great addition to the business park.”
A leading global IT provider with 72,000 people globally, CSC has significant clients in the Australian public sector. The new office at 12 Brindabella Circuit will cover two floors (ground and first) totalling around 2,000sqm, with the option to expand into a further 500sqm.
Stephen Brown Head of Regional Workplace Operations for CSC said the consolidation would deliver the organisation a single new place of business in Canberra allowing for better workplace collaboration and efficiencies.
“Important to CSC’s relocation to Brindabella Business Park was a contemporary new office that fit our requirements including convenient location, state-of-the-art facilities and services and the precinct-wide approach to workplace solutions that the business park provides. The new office space being fit for purpose will encourage greater collaboration amongst our employees and enable the consolidated team to take advantage of emerging technologies in the new environment for the benefit of our clients,” Mr Brown said.
The fit out, which Canberra Airport will manage on behalf of CSC, will include the building achieving a 4.5 star NABERS energy rating.
In the coming months, CSC staff will enjoy tours of the building and business park, regular progress photos of the construction works and fit out, welcome packs about working at the business park and a barbecue on arrival to meet the Canberra Airport property team.
Michael Ceacis on behalf of Colliers International assisted Canberra Airport in negotiating the leasing arrangements with CSC.
