International real estate services company Cushman & Wakefield has been appointed as facility manager of the new Woodside headquarters in Perth, with former Knight Frank director Bret Madden brought on to lead the on-site team.

The new building, named Mia Yellagonga, recently reached practical completion, with Woodside’s staff transitioning from the current location at Woodside Plaza over the second half of 2018.

Woodside Petroleum appointed Cushman & Wakefield following a two-stage competitive tender process run in the first half of the year.

Cushman’s successful bid was led by client solutions director Benjamin Tracey, while Dylan O’Donnell will be responsible for the ongoing service to Woodside.

Mr Tracey said the company was delighted to have secured the contract.

“Mia Yellagonga sets the standard for Australian workplaces, offering focus, collaboration and innovation spaces that interface perfectly with onsite services,” he said.

“The fitness and recreational facilities are unparalleled and this is all underpinned by cutting edge technology and a true connection to the surrounding community and heritage of the site.”

“Our onsite team will partner with Woodside to maximise the performance of Mia Yellagonga and its impact on Woodside’s operations, while delivering exemplary onsite service.”

Cushman also said it had hired Mr Madden, who had previously served at Frank Knight as a senior director for the past decade.

Mr Madden will manage the 60,000 square metre facility with a team of 15 employees.

“We’re incredibly excited to have Bret on board,” managing director of global occupier services Adam Treffry said.

“His decision to join Cushman & Wakefield as part of this mandate demonstrates the quality of Woodside’s Mia Yellagonga and underpins Cushman & Wakefield’s standing as the leading integrated facilities management and workplace services provider to major corporates in Australia.”

The Mia Yellagonga complex comprises a range of facilities including the NLA Karlak office tower and Kooya, a separate four-storey office at the south-west corner with 500sqm floor plates.

Other key features include the Cara Auditorium with a capacity of 400, 650 bike spaces, a gymnasium, a pool, outdoor recreation spaces, a commercial kitchen and a cafeteria.
