Australia’s tallest engineered timber building
5 King is a high performance commercial building and the tallest engineered timber building in Australia. The 52 metre* high tower in the Brisbane Showgrounds development will also hold the title for the largest gross floor area (GFA) for an engineered timber office building worldwide.
At ground level, a substantial 54 metre long timber colonnade lined with cafes and restaurants will cater to the need for creative workspaces outside of the office while establishing a welcoming entry to the building. The side-core design offers generous 1,588 square metre net leaseable area (NLA) floorplates, with a total of 14,921 square metre (NLA) over 10 floors.
This Brisbane building will be targeting a 6 Star Green Star Design and As Built v1.1 and a NABERS Energy 5 Star rating. As well as using sustainably sourced timber, the building will integrate rainwater harvesting, energy efficient lighting and optimized air-conditioning. Premium end of trip facilities for 152 bicycles and parking for 56 cars is planned.
