The completion of One Angel Square has seen county council staff moved out of 12 buildings in Northampton, including County Hall, into one purpose-built office in the town centre.
It's expected the new building will save £51 million in running costs alone over the next 30 years with further savings associated with the sale of buildings and the end of leases.
One Angel Square has regenerated a formerly derelict site and will bring more than 2,000 staff closer to the town centre boosting the local economy.
Northamptonshire County Council says the total project cost £53 million and was delivered under-budget.
The new building has faced months of delays and there have been concerns among staff about the a hot-desk layout inside.
