Mounts Bay Road is set to welcome a new sustainable office building as the City of Perth gives the Brookfield project a green tick.

The timber building will be erected during 2023 within the Bishops See Heritage precinct, on the corner of Spring Street.

The 10 storey building will be delivered by Brookfield Properties on behalf of joint owners Brookfield Asset and Hawaiian.

As far as sustainability goes, the building will aim for a 5.5 Star NABERS rating, a 6 Star Green Star rating and an IWBI WELL Gold Core rating.

“We welcome the City of Perth’s decision to grant approval for our new building which embodies the very best thinking in sustainable design,” Brookfield Properties Regional Director, Development & Property Nicholas Ozich said.

The sustainability methods already in place include using construction methods with lower embodied carbon output than typical methods, more efficiency with less waste and the reduction of construction period through off-site fabrication.

The building was designed by the Donaldson Boshard Architecture Studio and was designed to “seamlessly integrate the gardens and built environment”.

“The building is literally made out of trees, the natural materiality of the timber structure helps to nestle it into the garden and the articulation of the facade elements brings a human scale, extending the workplace experience into the garden itself,” Donaldson Boshard Director, Grant Boshard said.

The building will have a total gross floor area of 9800 square metres and includes a rooftop terrace with views of Kings Park and the Swan River.
