80 Albert Street is a commercial office tower in the Brisbane CBD that is to be converted into hotel accommodation.

This is a significant opportunity to deliver a high quality product to service the undersupply of hotel rooms in the city, as Brisbane and Queensland continues to grow and thrive as both a tourist and business destination.

Some of the opportunities explored to deliver additional value to the client include:

  • Using some of the existing plant space currently on the floor plates for storage purposes, thus freeing up proposed store areas for additional rooms/ apartments.
  • Rationalising existing non-continuous risers to save floor space.
  • Providing redundancy to the existing single chiller set.
  • Providing weather protection to external plant to prolong plant service life.
