Castlerock is thrilled to be further cementing our relationship with the Western Australian Government with the development of a new $8 million bespoke office building in the northern Perth suburb of Butler.

The 1,100sqm building which is due to be finished by mid-2022 is located at 225 Butler Boulevard, Butler and has already signed a 15-year lease with the WA State Government.

The new purpose built, and designed property will also feature a number of Castlerock’s staple inclusions of a 40kW solar array to reach a 5-star NABERS rating, and a commitment to employing minimum 75 per cent local labour throughout the development.

Reducing the reliance on car parking is also a priority with the building including End-of-trip (EOT) facilities, such as change rooms, bicycle parking and showers, a strategy that has the support of the State Government for smaller buildings.
