Australia 108

Melbourne

 

The tallest building in the southern hemisphere, Australia 108 is a new residential development in Melbourne currently under development by Brookfield Multiplex. Rickard Engineering is the façade engineers to Minesco who are supplying the aluminium and glass curtain wall.

The curved geometry of the façade and large displacement of the building meant it was essential for special considerations to be made with regard to façade/building movements and the interaction between the two.

The “Star Burst” design between Levels 69 and 72 is highly complicated and is constructed with aluminium panels and glazing panels installed on trusses.
