Ballarat GovHub

Survey view of building structure

Cardno provided Survey services including setout for construction and preparation of NLA plans for the $100 million Ballarat GovHub building.

Construction of the Ballarat GovHub commenced in early 2019 and was completed in April 2021. The 5 storey office with 2 basement level car parks will be home to up to 1000 Victorian Government employees.  

The GovHub design includes:

  • A glass conservatory between the Civic Hall and the GovHub, creating a strong public link between Civic Hall and the new building
  • A reconstructed lower hall — to be used as a shared space for a cafe/bar, gallery or live music venue
  • A civic plaza on Mair Street and a central plaza that will connect the GovHub, Civic Hall and the library
  • Ground floor spaces for the community to access Victorian Government services
  • Five storeys of office space with large windows to the north and south
  • Basement carparking and end-of-trip facilities to encourage walking and cycling
  • Strong pedestrian links to the Ballarat CBD and Ballarat train station
