On Tuesday 17 December 2013, the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) Bendoc Depot was officially opened by Mr Brad Battin MP, Parliamentary Secretary for the Environment and Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull.

Mr Bull said having the depot fully operational and ready for the upcoming fire season was a great result for the local community.

k20 Architecture is proud to be involved with this project, and in helping to effectively manage emergency situations by designing a facility that will withstand snow and hailstorms that are not uncommon in the Bendoc area, and offering fantastic new amenities for local and visiting crew.
