Midtown CentreConstruction innovation in Brisbane
VAE are proud to have received the contract from Hutchinson Builders for the installation of Mechanical services for the Midtown Centre project in Brisbane.
In what is believed to be an Australian first, The Midtown project will merge two existing buildings into one single 44,000 sqm PCA A Grade office building.
The merger of two old government buildings (Health and Forestry House) involves the in-fill of the 20-metre space between the existing building forming one floor plate. Once combined, the existing 19 storey building is then extended to 26 levels with a common floor plate to form the Midtown Centre building. The original heritage facade on the Charlotte street side which dates back to the 1890’s will be restored and retained as part of the project.
The combined building provides large floor plates that incorporate an abundance of natural light as well as a 3 level mixed mode ventilated atrium and 840 m2 sky garden on level 20 featuring Queensland sub-tropical landscaping, and terraces.
The new Midtown Centre will deliver a 5 Star Green Star rating as well as Silver Well rated core and shell, and is scheduled for completion mid-2021.
We look forward to working closely with the Hutchies team to deliver a truly innovative, outstanding new A-grade office building.
