Winner of the 2016 MBA Project of the year award for Commercial Building over $5 million, 180 Brisbane has raised the bar for commercial buildings in the CBD.
Its striking 34-storey façade pays homage to the Brisbane River while inside the focus is on providing a healthy work environment.
This is achieved with floor-by-floor fresh air intakes and steeped ceilings that maximise natural light.
Other environmental initiatives include bicycle racks for tenants, rainwater and greywater recycling and a tri-generation plant for energy generation.
These helped the building achieve a rating of 6 Green Stars by the Building Council of Australia and 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating.
A range of Air Design MODUtherm Air Handling Units were installed in the building. These are helping to create an environment that is healthy and productive to work in.
