Construction Contractor Declares Melbourne’s EQ Tower Officially Complete
Melbourne, Australia – 15 May 2017

Brookfield Multiplex has just completed ICD Property’s 63-story EQ Tower, delivering the brand new residential building to Melbourne’s CBD skyline.

Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the tower is located at 127-141 A’Beckett Street and comprises a total of 633 apartments in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations.

The complex includes a number of amenities like a 25-meter outdoor swimming pool and BBQ area; an indoor gym, sauna, and spa; private dining rooms; karaoke suites; cinema; a gaming room; and lounges.

“We are delighted to complete this new residential tower, drawing upon our extensive experience constructing high-rise residential buildings in the city,” Brookfield Multiplex Regional Managing Director Graham Cottam said.

According to the company, over 325 people worked on-site and complexities faced included the building changing shape between levels 24 and 36, harsh weather conditions associated with constructing a tower above 200 meters, and building damper tanks on the roof to counterbalance building sway.

Innovative construction techniques used by the firm included the installation of the façade curtain wall from behind protection screens to improve site safety and the installation of a centralized VRV air-conditioning system, enabling all condenser units to be removed from balconies.

The tower’s design also includes a range of ESD features, such as photovoltaic solar panels, rainwater harvesting and re-use, water-efficient fixtures and appliances, and high-performance double-glazing throughout.
