The building, which was designed by Ashley Pettit Architects and being constructed by Auldyn Construction Limited, will minimise the impact on the environment incorporating a number of sustainable techniques and technologies.

The new headquarters, to be named Thie Slieau Whallian, will enable the Department to centralise its six divisions which are currently based at various locations around the Island and improve the Department’s accessibility to the public.
