Brisbane SquareEdit profile
Brisbane Square is a high-rise building in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The building has 38 floors and rises to 151 metres. The building's main use is for office space, the lower floors leased to retailers, with a 350-space car park below the building. Significant tenants include the Brisbane City Council and Suncorp. Brisbane Square is situated on the block bounded by William Street, George Street, Queen Street and Adelaide Street. The building faces the Conrad Treasury Casino (on Queen Street) and the Law Courts Complex (Adelaide Street).
Brisbane Square is owned by ABN AMRO and was designed by international architects Denton Corker Marshall. The Civil and Structural engineers for the project were Qantec McWilliam consulting engineers. Two of the four distinctive, rectangular, coloured spaces near the base of the building contain the new Brisbane City Council and Brisbane Square Library . Brisbane Square is the largest commercial office building in Australia to have been awarded a 5 star Green Star rating. The original development application included a number of residential floors on the top of the building, however this was rejected on the basis that noise levels would be too excessive.The ESD part of the design process was undertaken by EMF Griffith.
Construction of the non typical skyscraper was completed in late 2006, an outstanding performance for such a complex highrise structure. The project was constructed by Baulderstone Hornibrook QLD Pty. Ltd., and was completed in 2006. Key personnel during the construction phase were Chris MacDonald (Project Manager), Brian Weigal (Site Manager) and Phil Reed (Senior Engineer).
