Deloitte’s Canberra Office Soars to New Heights with a Skyline-View Workspace near the Airport

Must Read

A whirlwind of relocations and upgrades sweeps through Australia’s consulting industry as Deloitte makes its mark with a strategic office shift, signalling a fierce battle for talent and the challenges of a post-pandemic business landscape.

Professional services firm Deloitte has recently completed the relocation of its Canberra office, moving from 6 Brindabella Circuit to a larger adjacent space, marking the latest development in a series of moves within the country’s prominent consultancies.

Amidst a flurry of office relocations and upgrades by Australia’s largest accounting and consulting networks, Deloitte’s move to a new Canberra base stands out. However, the distance covered was just about 200 meters. 

From Canberra to Sydney and Beyond, Chasing Views and Talent in the Consulting Race

The firm’s new location remains conveniently situated in the Brindabella Business Park, offering easy access to the airport for its jet-setting consultants. 

However, the scenic views from the Canberra office pale compared to the breathtaking sights at Deloitte’s recently launched Sydney office.

Interestingly, the Canberra office relocation represents Deloitte’s third consecutive move within a short period, with more relocations planned for the future.

In addition to its cutting-edge premises in Circular Quay, which boast panoramic views of the Sydney Opera House and harbour, Deloitte relocated its Western Sydney headquarters to 8 Parramatta Square towards the end of last year. 

The firm has also secured significant leases for upcoming developments in Brisbane and Adelaide, with the latter expected to be ready by the end of next year.

The motivation behind these rapid moves is twofold. Firstly, the substantial growth in Australia’s consulting industry has led to space constraints for significant players like Deloitte, necessitating these relocations. 

Secondly, firms are now navigating the post-pandemic business landscape, facing the formidable challenge of attracting and retaining talent amidst persistent skills shortages and the rising demand for remote work arrangements.

Earn the Commute, Make a Statement: BDO, Deloitte, and KPMG Spark an Office Upgrade Showdown

Following their recent lease signing in the central business district (CBD), BDO’s Sydney office managing partner, Grant Saxon, described the trend of acquiring high-quality, technology-driven workspaces as a means for the firm to “earn the commute” of its staff while making a statement to both clients and prospective employees. 

KPMG, another key player, also relocated its operations to Western Sydney, seemingly engaged in a competitive upgrade race with Deloitte.

The new Canberra office of the latter, led by Phillip Roberts, who recently assumed the role of national clients leader, has been hailed for its impressive design, vibrant atmosphere, and state-of-the-art technology. 

Commenting on the move, ACT cyber leader Prescott Pym noted, “Although the distance covered was less than 500 meters, it has brought about a monumental change in our work environment,” further emphasising the office’s adaptability to the daily workflow, informal collaboration among colleagues, and provision of serene spaces for private conversations.
