The “new” Two21 Office

The Two21 Office is now in Tech Park in Bentley. Tech Park is home to a super computer and a number of high profile companies. It’s away from the Perth CBD but about a 15 minute drive away. Plenty of parking, trees, birds, grass… it feels like a tree change close to the city. From the start of March 2022, Two21 is making Tech Park our home.

Our address is Enterprise 2, 11 Brodie-Hall Dr, Bentley. It’s on the corner of De Laeter Way.

There are limited options for offsite meeting locations however Vic Park is only 3km away. The big benefit is the amount of space. COVID may hit Western Australia hard and we have mitigation strategies. We are avoiding public transport and high density meeting locations. The new office has plenty of space to social distance, have meetings outside, plenty of natural light and lots of street parking.

The new Two21 office has a dedicated Salesforce training room. We are excited to run in person Salesforce training events in Perth. Details will be released as they become available.

 

What is the significance of the street names?

John de Laeter

Professor John de Laeter (1933 – 2010) established the Physics Department at Curtin University in 1968.  He developed a geochronology capability in WA in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Western Australia. Rising to the position of Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research and Development, John spearheaded a tripartite proposal to commission a new SHRIMP ion microprobe at Curtin in 1994, and received funding in 1998 to establish a State Centre of Excellence Program in geochemistry and isotope science. This was aptly named the John de Laeter Centre for Mass Spectrometry.

In addition, John collaborated with the WA Museum on studying the state meteorite collection, and co-authored the book “Meteorites: A journey through space and time”. John de Laeter’s legacy includes a substantive body of published works, a celestial body that carries his name (Minor Planet de Laeter 3893), and a devoted group of students and colleagues that carry on his tradition of collaborative research that shapes our collective understanding of the Earth and its place in the Universe.

The John de Laeter Research Centre is part of Curtin University.
