The Government Office Building is a smart, high profile building that is easily accessible, environmentally sensitive and economically responsible. KANNFINCH delivered both the architectural design and the internal fit-out of this award-winning building, which incorporates customised fit-outs for the Sydney Catchment Authority, the Department of Community Services, and the Office of Fair Trading. The seven storey building successfully integrates a new government facility in the Western Sydney region and is a gateway statement to the Penrith CBD. One of the key design challenges was to devise customized yet flexible internal spaces within a constrained budget.

The building successfully incorporates a number of sustainability initiatives such as operable sun shading, weathering steel fa├žade, water harvesting and re-use, photovoltaics, and energy monitoring systems. An operational energy efficiency level higher than the 4.5 ABGR design rating was achieved in the first quarter of operations.
