Ballarat's GovHub is a step closer with the construction team announced for $100 million project.
Kane and Nicholson have been appointed to the job, which is expected to create around 500 jobs during construction.
Early works are expected to start before Christmas but car parking is not expected to be impacted, while demolition of the Lower Hall, skate park and car park will begin in January 2019.
The project has a minimum local content of 91 per cent, with labour and material to be sourced from the Ballarat region where possible.
Once completed the in late 2020, the GovHub will accommodate up to 1,000 government employees, including 600 positions moving from Melbourne.
