420 Flinders Street
In designing this commercial tower in the city heart of Townsville, Arkhefield has delivered a highly energy efficient, cost effective development, and a striking addition to the North Queensland capital’s urban landscape.
The tower was designed to be completely occupied by Ergon Energy, with the ground level accommodating the Ergon Energy lobby and a mix of retail and hospitality outlets.
As the building fills the entire corner site, considerable emphasis was placed on defining the development within the surrounding built environment, while extending and enhancing the urban landscape at ground level. The building façade is dominated by sequences of vertical blades—providing shade, optimising energy efficiency, and creating a strong impression for the prominent address. The double height entry and foyer contribute to the public streetscape, while defining the building entrance. The orientation optimises views of both the city surrounds and Magnetic Island.
420 Flinders Street is a prime example of Arkhefield’s integrated project delivery and building information modelling (BIM), and one of Australia’s most advanced BIM projects to date. Leading a collaborative and integrated approach to project delivery, Arkhefield helped to optimise the client budget and dramatically reduce construction time, while maintaining the highest standards of quality and integrity.
