Innovation in sustainability has long been a central focus of our work, and working on T3 Collingwood with project partners Hines, Icon, AECOM and Duo Projects has enabled us to develop our expertise in delivering what is now Victoria’s largest mass-timber building.

T3 targets 5.5 Star NABERS, has been awarded 6-star Green Star (Design and As-Built) and its mass-timber construction contains 34% less embodied carbon than an equivalent concrete structure. Constructed from timber ethically sourced from local renewable forests, it sets a new benchmark in the design of sustainable commercial office buildings while positively engaging with its post-industrial local context. The team tackled significant technical and regulatory challenges in realising the building, which is currently the world’s 8th tallest mass-timber construction.

Kudos to the design team including Graham Burrows, Chris Botterill, Jimmy Walker, Sebastian Noguera, Melita Kei, Nat Cain
