Our latest project at Melbourne Central is Melbourne’s first timber-framed commercial office tower.
The 10-storey 19,400 m² building is made of cross-laminated timber, a factory-manufactured material. Manufactured timber is lighter and more sustainable than other timber, so it minimises construction time and waste.
The frame itself will be visible through the glazed façade.
The tower, for client GPT Group, isn’t just for those who work in it: there’s a rooftop with green spaces for the public, as well as retail, entertainment and dining.
“A lot of people talk about the potential for mixed use, but not many people do it.”
—ARM Design Director Neil Masterton
