443 Queen St is a new generation of design for subtropical living. This open, breathing building is radically rethinking traditional high-rise design of sealed, hermetic towers. Indeed, the architecture of this unexpected structure celebrates and engages with the environment.
The 47-storey tower will include 264 apartments where full-height windows capture views of the Brisbane River. Each apartment is nested within a garden environment, boasting abundant natural light and crossflow ventilation.
The project, designed by Architectus and Singapore-based design practice WOHA, will be Australia’s first building to achieve a Generosity Index of 80 and Green Plot ratio of 197%.
Our involvement started during tender time when we helped a major team 1 contractor with tender advices. During construction we have assisted with various services including podium facade secondary steel and construction engineering. Our digital team has fully detailed the secondary steel and coordinated with the architect and subcontractors to remove clashes and ensure a smooth installation on site. We have also been working with the construction team, as required to provide support during construction to design and supervise various complex temporary works.
