Sekisui House opens new Queensland headquarters at West Village
More than 40 staff from two locations will merge into the new headquarters, with responsibility for three signature projects in Queensland, valued at $3.7 billion in total - Ecco Ripley, including Ripley Town Centre (Ipswich Regional Council); Yaroomba (Sunshine Coast Regional Council) and West Village. Nationally, Sekisui House is managing projects valued at more than $14 billion.
To celebrate the new Queensland headquarters, Sekisui House lifted a 3 tonne fig tree in through the second storey roof of the Cone Factory. The six metre high tree will take pride of place and be a permanent focal point inside the new offices - just one of about 10,000 plants to eventually be established across the West Village site.
This expertly executed manoeuver was featured on local news bulletins - Ten Eyewitness News and 9News.
West Village Project Director Andrew Thompson said the new office fitout represented the first part of the permanent restoration of two heritage listed buildings on the West Village site.
