National Office Fitout Cost Benefit Analysis
|Client|| Department of Families, Housing, Community Services
and Indigenous Affairs
|Timeframe||2012 - 2013|
In mid-2012 the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) analysed its current property in the ACT. FaHCSIA’s overall ACT office accommodation was in the order of 53,000m2, spread over six buildings across Canberra.
FaHCSIA’s lease over a 33,000m2 building was due to expire in December 2016, with no options to extend. At this point in 2012, FaHCSIA engaged Xact to commence the process of planning its future accommodation requirements through the development of documentation and processes consistent with the Department of Finance's Commonwealth Property Management Framework.
Xact’s role was to provide expert advice and assistance to undertake the cost benefit analysis and prepare the Initial Business Case for the Department of Finance's approval.
