DAFF Headquarters.......................................Previous Page

PLANS for a new eco-friendly Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry headquarters at St John's are well under way following its recent application for planning permission.

Lieutenant Governor Sir Paul Haddacks, was shown plans and enjoyed a tour of the proposed site – which is on land next to the Forestry, Amenity and Lands Division – during an official visit.

The new headquarters, which will centralise the department's six divisions, will be one of the first office eco-developments in the Island.

A DAFF spokesman said it would 'act as a pioneer for energy efficiency and sustainability in line with the environmental policies of the government'.

Ashley Pettit Architects designed the building in a way which would minimise the impact on the environment by maximising the use of natural ventilation and natural lighting.

It has been designed to look like a Dutch barn and will be built using mainly natural materials, such as timber and glass so that it appears to blend into the surrounding landscape.
