The Midtown Centre project in Brisbane’s CBD is a revolutionary redevelopment of two previously occupied state government buildings into one substantial office tower. BSE was engaged by joint venture owners, AsheMorgan and DMANN Corp to design the building electrical and mechanical services and provide associated advice as to efficiency in the delivery of what will essentially be a new building. The two towers, previously known as the Queensland Forestry and Health buildings will be transformed from two 17-storey office towers, totalling 26,650 square metres into one 26-storey commercial office tower totalling 42,000 square metre,.
The existing space between the two towers will receive infilled levels joining the buildings together along with the addition of 6 new levels spanning across the tower footprint. The development will also provide ground floor retail space, a retail activated laneway joining Mary and Charlotte Streets, an outdoor sky garden on level 20 and an energy efficient reflective glass facade design. The building will also target a 5-Star Green Star office rating, 5.5 Stars NABERS office rating and a Silver Well certification. Midtown Centre is anticipated to be completed by third quarter 2020.
BSE is providing a range of engineering services throughout the design and construction process including demolition advice, development approval design, construction documentation and services during construction. The core disciplines provided by BSE’s Brisbane office include Mechanical and Electrical engineering services.
