LOCATION: 25 King Street, Bowen Hills
TYPE OF PROJECT: Commercial
YEAR(S): 2017 – 2019
CONSTRUCTION VALUE: $140M
We are proud to announce our latest project, 25 King Street, a $140 million development, working with the multinational construction company Lendlease.
K5 will be largest timber building in the world by area and is one of the most significant for timber – the use of which in office buildings, apartments towers and other facilities is gaining ground across the country.
At a height of almost 45 metres, 5 King will be the tallest engineered timber building in Australia and the tallest and largest engineered timber office building by gross floor area in the world.
The timber materials and methodology bring the potential of faster and more cost-efficient construction. Buildings made from engineered timber have a significantly lower carbon footprint than other buildings during construction and subsequent operation.We are very proud to be involved in this unique project for Brisbane.
For this project we used ScaffGuard. ScaffGuard is an innovative scaffold containment system like no other. Designed to be used primarily with modular “Kwikstage” type scaffolds, ScaffGuard provides long lasting, cost-effective containment.
Almost 40% of the surface area is perforated with 14mm diameter holes resulting in less wind loading and better work site ventilation. ScaffGuard is also lightweight and easy to handle, transport and store.
