The Australian Computer Society (ACS) Victoria opened its new purpose-built 2000 sqm Docklands office at 839 Collins Street on July 25.

The “new technology and innovation hub” was developed by ACS, the professional association for Australia’s technology sector, to drive the development of digital communities.

The office features digitally-enabled floorspace, private workplaces, high-tech meeting rooms and an interactive media wall.

President Yohan Ramasundara and Victoria’s parliamentary secretary for jobs Jane Garrett opened the office.

“We’re delighted to be able to contribute to Victoria’s vibrant technology scene,” president Yohan Ramasundara said.

“The opening of our Melbourne hub is also part of ACS’s commitment to be a catalyst for human development while helping the creation and adoption of emerging technology.”

The collaborative workspace was designed to create a venue where tech professionals and businesses can come together and tackle some of the nation’s pressing technology challenges.

ACS CEO Andrew Johnson said he believed Australia could be a world leader in technology talent “and the Docklands hub is part of realising this vision”.

“The hub creates a meeting place for Victoria’s technology community and gives entrepreneurs a venue to demonstrate their products to a broad audience, gain important insights and iterate throughout the development process.”

The hub will house over 150 tech professionals, and, along with over 50 trades employed during the fit-out, brings 200 jobs to Victoria.
