Engineering firm Worley is set to consolidate all its Perth offices at 240 St Georges Terrace, including the recently acquired energy chemical and resources (ECR) division of Jacobs.

Worley, which is in the process of formally changing its name from WorleyParsons, completed its acquisition of Jacobs ECR last week, with a payment of $US3.2 billion ($A4.5 billion).

The acquisition, announced last October, is expected to make Worley the largest engineering firm in WA.

It had 880 staff and 650 engineers in WA prior to the acquisition of Jacobs ECR, according to the BNiQ database, while Jacobs alone had 883 staff across Australia.

Worley has secured 10,706 square metres of space at 240 St Georges Terrace, resulting in 92.5 per cent of the building, or more than 43,000 square metres of space now committed.

Other tenants include Wood, currently the largest engineering firm in WA, according to the BNiQ database.

Macquarie Bank, Iluka Resources, HWL Ebsworth, BP and Nous Group have also signed up over the past 12 months.

Dexus Head of Office Leasing Chris Hynes said: “We are pleased to be able to expand on our relationship with Worley and provide them with a new home for their State office, satisfying their needs for a well-located, premium quality workplace with superior amenity.”

Worley’s Head of APAC Property Cecille Callaghan said the leasing deal will will enable the creation of a new 'workplace of the future'.

“It will also allow for the consolidation of Worley’s existing Perth offices, and house the recently acquired Jacobs ECR business,” she said.

While the new office will house most Worley staff, those assigned to projects will continue working at customers’ offices.

Dexus said new end-of-trip amenity at 240 St Georges is now complete, with further development works including the creation of a new street entry.

Re-development is also underway on an improved retail offering and the creation of a new childcare centre.
