Construction firm Multiplex has won a contract to deliver the fifth and final commercial office tower that will complete Walker Corporation’s AUD2.5bn ($1.8bn) Collins Square development in Melbourne, Australia.
Located at 727 Collins Street in Melbourne’s CBD, the AUD126m ($95m), 33-storey tower will offer a total net lettable area of about 40,000 sq m of commercial office space.
Designed by Woods Bagot, the latest building will include office space with an architectural curtain wall façade to provide a light-filled spacious entry and public circulation space.
The company has completed the 22-storey fourth tower in November 2016. Work on the last tower is set to begin soon with completion scheduled for October 2018.
Collins Square development includes five commercial office buildings providing a combined total of more than 200,000 sq m of net lettable area.
The project, which uses a Tri-Generation system for producing power, rainwater harvesting system and water efficient fixtures and fittings, has a Green Star Design and As Built v3 Rating as well as NABERS Energy 5 Star Rating.
Multiplex regional managing director for Victoria Graham Cottam said: “We are delighted to be appointed to deliver the fifth and final office tower at Collins Square, on the back of successfully completing Tower 4 late last year.
“It is a market leading commercial development providing much-needed new commercial space in Melbourne’s CBD and complementing the surrounding streetscapes.”
