First look inside Australia’s tallest timber tower

Lendlease has released images of the inside of its engineered timber office building under construction at 25 King Street Brisbane, which is set to become Australia’s tallest engineered timber building when complete.

The 45-metre, nine-story building – constructed with cross-laminated timber (CLT) floors and walls, and glulam structural beams and columns – is also set to have the largest gross floor area for an engineered timber office building in the world – for now. Global competition is fierce as the benefits of the technology become better understood.

Releasing the images (click on link below) on Monday, Lendlease said six of the building’s nine floors had been completed in less than 12 months. In total, the building is using 4824 cubic metres of CLT and 1415 cubic metres of glulam. The building is targeting 6 Star Green Star Design and As Built and WELL Core and Shell ratings and is due for completion in late 2018.
