New tenant for Collins Square

03 Sep 2015

Engineering consultancy AECOM will soon become one of Docklands’ newest corporate tenants.

The company last month announcing it had signed a 10-year lease for 5500sqm at Walker Corporation’s Tower 2.

AECOM plans to relocate staff from 8 Exhibition St and 80 Collins St to the Docklands address between May and June next year.

According to AECOM’s director of external affairs Johnny Sollitt-Davis, with both leases at the CBD sites coming up for renewal, a lengthy review and consideration of market options led to the company signing the Docklands lease.

As the lead structural engineer on the Tower 2 project, Mr Sollitt-Davis said AECOM had a unique perspective on what the building and surrounding precinct would provide.

“This building also gave us the opportunity to co-locate all our people and have the opportunity to absorb the additional employees who will be joining from URS Australia when that integration is complete,” Mr Sollitt-Davis said.

“The building itself offers significantly larger floor plates, co-working and event spaces which is more suited to the collaborative work styles that will allow AECOM to be more client and project focused than ever before.”

Leasing two and a half levels of the building, AECOM will join anchor tenant KPMG, which has leased almost 30,000sqm and legal firm Maddocks, which has leased three floors.

According to Walker Corporation, there are just two floors left in the Tower 2 building for lease.

Chairman of Walker Corporation Lang Walker said: “We are excited to welcome one of the world’s top infrastructure, project and architectural groups in AECOM to Collins Square, reinforcing its position as Melbourne’s leading new commercial, retail and hospitality precinct.”
