Rocco Bressi and Darran Kindracuk, Bovis Lend Lease, explored the influence of property market aspirations and sustainability issues upon workplace environments presently influencing office buildings in Australia at the CTBUH 8th World Congress in Dubai. Emerging trends and influences are shifting the traditional demand for high-rise office towers toward an alternative or evolved building typology of Sustainable Groundscrapers and Megaplate Towers. In a country where internal space efficiencies are key drivers in virtually all commercial developments, society is witnessing progressive design concepts and the creation of world class benchmarks. This presentation highlighted the primary considerations for current office building design and construction as well as clearly identify key design and planning drivers for contemporary and future office buildings.
