The Department of Finance has engaged Lendlease Construction to deliver the National Security Office Precinct (the Precinct) adjacent to York Park in Barton, following a competitive procurement process.

Lendlease Construction is an established global construction company that has been delivering projects across Australia for over 70 years.

The Precinct is expected to accommodate up to 5,000 workers and will include hospitality and retail amenities servicing both the Precinct occupants and wider public. It will provide a permanent solution to the critical accommodation and capability requirements of several national security and other Commonwealth agencies.

The Minister for Finance, Senator Katy Gallagher, has welcomed the next stage of this major investment in Canberra. 
“This is an important step in a major project for the ACT that will support jobs and provide accommodation for the public service.”

Construction of the Precinct is proposed to commence in early 2025.
