About the project
The Coffs Harbour Workplace Hub will consolidate 26 existing Government offices into one modern, efficient building providing a quality workplace for 643 regional public servants consistent with the high standards of metro locations.
The project will support more than 481 jobs during design and construction and stimulate economic benefits of $226.4 million.
Regional government workplace hubs:
- Enable and support public servants to live and work in the regions, closer to the people they serve, to help build deeper connections with local communities
- Encourage collaboration, innovation and increase employee productivity
- Help attract and retain a greater diversity of talented people in regional NSW
- Facilitate the Government’s commitment to relocate 400 Department of Regional NSW roles to the regions and support the implementation of the Regional Workforce Principles policy
