25 King St - A Tall Timber Tale

October 10, 2018
25 King is set to become the tallest and largest engineered-timber office building in Australia*. A co-creation between Lendlease and Aurecon, together with Bates Smart, 25 King will be a world-class building for years to come. Among the steel and concrete buildings in Brisbane’s landscape, Aurecon’s client, Lendlease, offered an opportunity to be part of something special. Lendlease had an aspiration to construct tall buildings made of timber as part of the AUD$2.9 billion renewal of Brisbane Showgrounds in Bowen Hills. Located 1.6 km from the Brisbane CBD, the precinct is one of the largest urban renewal initiatives in Australia comprising 340 000 m2 of new residential, commercial and retail buildings. Aurecon sought to create a world class working environment when searching for new office space to relocate its 600 plus people. The timber option submitted by Lendlease gave Aurecon the chance to differentiate itself by creating an environment that puts its people at the heart of its design and thereby supporting the health and wellbeing of its people. As the anchor tenant, and along with a long history of collaborating with Lendlease, 25 King also presented Aurecon with the opportunity to be part of the engineering of their new home. Putting people at the heart of our built environment has brought the design of Australia’s tallest timber building to life. *By gross floor area, as of November 2018.
