Brisbane, Queensland

The prefabricated post-tensioned beam supports off the core allowed for an open-span floor plate with 14m clear spans and delivered a lighter, more efficient structure.

The prefabricated components and offsite assembly helped to overcome the challenging inner-city site conditions. The project was completed within 24 months of on-site construction, within 3 days of the completion date set 3 years earlier.

The building provides one of the largest bicycle parking spaces in Brisbane with approximately 300 bicycle parks and 60 showers, as well as providing a direct link with the Kurilpa Bridge which extends over the Brisbane River to the Gallery of Modern Art and South Bank.
