GHD Woodhead designed the new South Australian Police (SAPOL) Headquarters at 100 Angas Street, Adelaide. The building is an energy-efficient 5 Star Green Star rated office housing the administration and management of SAPOL.

The 10 storey facility provides 18,000 sqm of office accommodation and basement car parking for SAPOL Executive, Major Fraud Investigation Branch, Police Prosecution and Administration. In addition, the ground floor lobby accommodates a new customer service area providing the force with an accessible public face.

GHD Woodhead designed the commercial building and customised interior fitout. Each floor incorporates a common breakout café space at the heart of the integrated fitout, and brings the building in line with current workplace expectations. These common spaces are light and spacious with comfortable seating, full kitchen facilities and expansive views of the eastern suburbs and Adelaide Hills.

The resulting workplace exceeds the performance of a standard Property Council of Australia A-Grade level. The tailored design emphasises leadership and support as core functional activities, and maximises flexibility and efficiency, whilst satisfying the client’s specific security and cultural requirements.

The successful delivery of the separate fitout and base building works contracts was achieved through working with two different contractors. GHD Woodhead accommodated the contractors’ varying construction management processes and their need to integrate onsite efforts.
