World’s tallest timber office tower for Brisbane
Ampac QLD with our customer Triple M QLD and Interfire as the installer have been successful in receiving an order and project is due for completion in December 2018. This will be one of the most Iconic Building in QLD if not in the world due to its construction material
The largest timber building in the world by area will soon rise in Brisbane, in a $140 million development by Lendlease that is being bought out by the Lieberman-family backed Impact Investment Group.
The project is one of the most significant for timber – the use of which in office buildings, apartment’s towers and other facilities is gaining ground across the country.
At a height of almost 45 metres, 5 King Street can also lay claim to be the tallest office timber building in the world (the tallest is a student residence in Vancouver)
Buildings made from engineered timber have a significantly lower carbon footprint than other buildings during construction and subsequent operation.
The new tower is targeting a 6 Green Star Design & As Built rating, with sustainably sourced, engineered timber classes, energy efficient LED lighting, occupancy sensors, optimised air-conditioning and rooftop rainwater harvesting.
