Fire & Rescue Headquarters is a contemporary, state of the art commercial facility inclusive of an Activity Based Working Fit out. The development allows Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) to coordinate its operations more effectively by bringing much of the operational and administrative functions under one roof for greater efficiency.

The three storey glass building provides a vibrant and active workplace that helps the organisation create a unified culture with shared purpose and focus.  The creation of staff hubs and zones for collaboration bring people together to create a sense of community.  The scope enabled FRNSW to embrace a new way of doing business that unifies strategic and transactional centres.

The quality fit-out is commensurate with a Government agency head office facility and will allow for easy adaptation to changing needs.  NSW Public Works managed all phases of the project which provided accommodation facilities to relocate staff from leased premises in Elizabeth Street, Sydney, to a new building at Greenacre and to refurbished premises at Pyrmont Fire Station.  The new centre occupies 3,700sqm of floor space and the budget was $23 million.
