To enhance sustainability in the built environment, we must push the limits of innovation & creativity.
In today’s #buildinghero, we highlight those heroes behind Australia’s tallest and largest engineered-timber commercial building – 25 King in Brisbane 🇦🇺
25 King has won 16 (!) awards, including a 6-star Green Star Design rating & Queenland’s first WELL Core and Shell Certification at the Platinum level:
🪵 100% responsibly sourced timber from certified sustainably-managed forests, with a lower carbon footprint than traditional building materials.
🌱 Rainwater harvesting, aluminium sunshades reducing heat load, efficient low-temperature HVAC & lighting systems, interior natural daylighting & integrated biophilic design principles.
⚡ High thermal comfort for workers & a facade driving energy efficiency improvements of up to 46%.
What an impact!
