Environmentally Sustainable Design

Heritage Lanes was designed to meet ambitious sustainable building targets and deliver a positive impact for the environment and Australia’s future. We wanted to show that sustainable building construction was possible by becoming the most sustainable building in Brisbane.  

As the development progressed, the precinct exceeded its original targets. Now, not only is it one of the most sustainable commercial buildings in Brisbane, it’s also one of the most sustainable buildings in Australia. 

One of the key sustainable building and design practices implemented was the reuse of the existing two-storey heritage building. Meanwhile, the tower construction used a lower carbon concrete made with 70% recycled water and 89% recycled steel content. 90% of construction waste has been recycled and water saving features include the reuse of rainwater for cooling towers and irrigation, with 100 kilolitres of storage on site. 

We are extremely proud of our success in building with firm construction sustainability practices, those of which will contribute in paving the way for a greener future.
