ICN Queensland is working with Hutchinson Builders to identify local suppliers for the $280 million development of 205 North Quay in Brisbane.

Designed by world-class architecture firms Hassell, New York-based REX and Brisbane’s Richards & Spence, the 38-storey commercial tower is expected to boast 6-Star Greenstar, 5.5-Star NABERS energy (base building) and 4-Star NABERS water (base building) ratings.

Services Australia has been confirmed as the sole-occupant of the commercial floor space.

As well as the office space, the premium riverside development will house a public plaza, restaurant precinct, sky terraces and roof terrace. It’s also proposed to include a childcare centre and a wellbeing level, complete with a gym, wellness studio, shower facilities and open-air 25-metre lap pool.

Proposed project components are likely to include:

  • 43,700sqm commercial office space at PCA A-grade with premium services
  • approximately 700sqm of ground and lobby floor retail space
  • an auditorium for programmable events
  • next generation technology, facilities and amenities
  • 3 lift risers – river, high and skyrise
  • 2 plantrooms, one on the roof top and another at the base of the low rise
  • a podium-located substation, main switch & comms room
  • a largely vertically stacked services backbone within tower core.

Construction started in December 2021 and is expected to be complete at the end of 2024.

Hutchinson Builders, along with the developers Cbus Property, encourages local industry interested in supplying to the project to register an expression of interest (EOI) through ICN Gateway.

“We recommend you ensure your Gateway company profile complete, up-to-date and accurate, and that you elect to be notified via e-mail of supply opportunities. Register your interest as a full or partial scope supplier, and make sure you respond to all project and work package-specific questions,” ICN QLD Procurement Engineering Specialist Nimmi Pushparajan said, adding that companies should contact ICN in the first instance to improve their understanding of the EOI process.

“Please also understand that submitting an EOI does not guarantee you will progress further in the procurement process. Only companies that can demonstrate capability and capacity in accordance with Hutchinson Builders standards will be invited to pre-qualify for specific opportunities.”
