Experience

Castlerock is built on 18 years of experience developing and managing office buildings that Commonwealth and State Governments lease throughout Australia. With a deep knowledge of our niche and a commitment to the sustainability of our assets, we offer investors steady long-term growth.

We have successfully developed over 25 office buildings leased to Government departments across Australia and we’re continuing to develop more. We currently manage over 30 Government buildings nationally. 

  • Office space developed – 30,000sqm
  • Office space under management - 55,000sqm
  • Value of Assets under management - $350m

Our proactive asset management allows us to maintain the ambitious environmental ratings of the buildings across our entire portfolio. We have made it our specialty to meet the long-term needs of government, giving you the stability your money deserves. Our track record speaks for itself – in more than 15 years, not one of our tenants has moved out of our managed buildings.

Our values

We communicate openly and honestly, without fear of consequences.

We never stop asking if we can do it better.

Our actions match our words.

We treat each other like we would our own family.

We believe our workplace should be enjoyable and relaxed.

Sustainability

We take a long-term view of all our assets, assuring sound futures not only for our investors but also for the communities they serve. Built for purpose, NABERS and Greenhouse accredited - our buildings are energy efficient, economical and sustainable to operate. Proactive management throughout the lease minimises energy and water consumption while maximising profitability.

Buying local

We have successfully delivered projects in all states and territories, ranging from 250m2 facilities in remote aboriginal communities of Maningrida and Yuendumu to a 6,500m2 facility in Perth. We engage local building labour, managers and maintenance staff. Castlerock is deeply invested in communities our buildings serve.

Social responsibility

We are committed to giving back to communities, and on each project we engage Indigenous and local suppliers by priority. We believe that in building wealth for investors, we can also build a better society. Castlerock also designs and builds fully accessible buildings for all users.

Integrity

At Castlerock, integrity means shared benefit. Our funds and assets offer a win-win for investors, government and the communities they serve. We create long-term partnerships and provide a bedrock for community outcomes. This delivers not only stable profit for our investors, but also contributes to a stable economy and prosperous society.
