The RAC WA headquarters in Perth was designed as a landmark building to provide a high-profile identity statement for the RAC reflecting the ethos and services of the organisation.

The design features a generous, colonnaded frontage to Wellington St and distinctive floating raked roof forms. Inside, a highly efficient floor plate with 9,800m² of office space incorporates gallery areas for informal interaction between staff to foster a sense of community.

A thorough life-cycle costing analysis informed the specification of low maintenance materials and finishes and the implementation of energy efficient features. As a result the building achieved a 4-star ABGR rating.

The development was awarded the WA Property Council Rider Levett Bucknall Investment Award for Office Buildings 2009. This unique awards program measures the commercial success of a development in terms of operational efficiency, design and return on investment.
