ANDREW Barr has officially opened Winyu House, the new ACT Government office block in Gungahlin.

The building includes the first Access Canberra Service Centre.

“The opening of Winyu House and the Access Canberra Service Centre will help stimulate business in the area and ensure the people of Gungahlin are supported as the region continues to grow,” Andrew said.

“The addition of more than 650 ACT Government staff working in the town centre will provide an added boost to local businesses.

“The ACT Government worked closely with local developer, the KDN Group, to bring the project to fruition. The modern, open plan design of Winyu House sets a new standard for ACT Government accommodation, with a work space that promotes connectivity and openness. The building has been nominated for a 2015 Master Builders and Cbus Excellence in Building Award.

“Located on the ground floor of the building is the first Access Canberra Service Centre that brings together over 200 services previously provided at separate locations. The Centre features an open plan layout without barriers that allows customers to more easily interact with staff.

“Access Canberra presents a great opportunity to trial new service delivery models to make it easier for people to do business with the ACT Government. The digital-first Centre provides touch screens to enable a range of transactions to be easily completed online. It will also operate under a new model in which payments can only be made electronically, using debit or credit cards.

“The building houses the Access Canberra Service Centre, ACT Government’s Shared Services staff and a new early childhood centre.”
