Aurecon sought to create a world class working environment when searching for new office space to relocate its 600 plus people. The timber option submitted by Lendlease gave Aurecon the chance to differentiate itself by creating an environment that puts its people at the heart of its design and thereby supporting the health and wellbeing of its people.
Not only is Aurecon the anchor tenant, but also was part of the creation of 25 King as the structural engineers (with Lendlease), building services and acoustic engineers and ESD consultants for the building, along with architects Bates Smart, interior architects Woods Bagot and owners Impact Investment Group.
At 9 levels on top of a concrete podium, 25 King is currently the tallest and largest (at the time) engineered-timber office building in Australia. A co-creation between Lendlease and Aurecon, together with Bates Smart, 25 King is a world-class building of the future.
Construction finished in October 2018 with Aurecon moving its 700 Brisbane staff in early November 2018.
