Brookfield Place, Australia

Standing over 240 metres high, Brookfield Place is the tallest and most notable landmark building on the Perth skyline. Reflecting the latest concepts in contemporary office design, gently integrated amongst a cluster of repurposed heritage-listed buildings, the development proudly represents the owner Brookfield Office Properties in what is now a vibrant social destination for those working and living in the city.

The efficient steel structure coupled with external bracing and energy efficiency makes this building an engineering highlight for modern office developments. The heritage elements were successfully conserved and interwoven within the modern design features, providing a safe, healthy and productive space for over 5 000 people.

Aurecon designed a unique structural stability system for the centrepiece commercial tower that helped to create floor plates that give occupants of the 47 story building outstanding views of Perth and its surrounds.

Aurecon was also responsible for the 5 star energy efficient mechanical system, tower façades engineering, fire safety and fire protection design for this unique building as well as the heritage engineering, in particular the earthquake upgrade for these five buildings as part of the heritage precinct building refurbishments.

Our team worked collaboratively with stakeholders to increase design excellence and timely construction that successfully achieved the vision and met client, anchor tenant and community expectations.

Brookfield Place has become one of Australia’s most successful building projects owing to a collaborative, innovative, caring and enthusiastic design and construction team.
