Congratulations to our Sustainability team whose work on Jubilee Place has been recognised in Green Building Council Australia’s A Year in Focus: FY2022-23 report.

The newly rejuvenated Jubilee Place was recognised as Demonstrating Design Excellence for its 6 Star Green Star – Design & As Built v1.2. rating.

Green star is an internationally recognised rating system, developed by the Green Building Council of Australia, and sets the standard for healthy, resilient, positive buildings and places. As discussed in the report, Australia saw an 80% increase in Green Star certifications in the year 2022-23 – an indication that sustainability is on the rise.

Green Building Council Australia’s comments on Jubilee Place:

“Jubilee Place is a striking commercial tower sitting above a heritage hotel and destination dining precinct. Its diagrid steel structure and framework deliver a lighter building with less concrete than a traditional concrete framed design and significant embodied carbon savings. It is exciting to see Green Star incentivise and reward these types of worlding leading sustainability outcomes.”

Situated on the corner of St Pauls Terrace and Constance Street in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, this landmark development incorporates two new public spaces on the ground plan, an entry place directly adjacent to St Pauls Terrace, and a large social courtyard and dining precinct to the rear of the original hotel. Breathable glass louvered façade and lush landscaping envelopes the truly architectural form of Jubilee Place.

With the combined efforts of our departments, Floth were able to successfully deliver the sustainability, mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, fire protection, hydraulic, vertical transportation, and acoustic services for this project.
