Building, Design & Sustainability
KSD1 provides its tenants with an unmatched quality design offering, comprising 5 levels of commercial office space, ground floor retail and a basement parking ratio superior to that of competing developments. 35 secure basement car parking bays are still available at a ratio of 1 bay per 40m² NLA.
The design is highly contemporary in its aesthetics, complementing the activity of Kingsford Smith Drive and the Brisbane River through its expressive facade movements.
Large open floor-plates are a key feature, maximising connectivity, functionality and open plan work environments.
The building is targeting a 4.5 Star NABERS Energy rating and a 5 Star Green Star - Office Design Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
Key sustainability initiatives, along with other innovative design solutions, will culminate in KSD1 providing a truly quality workspace:
Contemporary facade shading and high performance double glazing to reduce heating and cooling loads, as well as energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
Three lifts providing fast and efficient vertical transportation including the latest destination control technology to reduce energy.
Low sill heights to maximise light penetration and view corridors.
High efficiency T5 lighting with energy efficient light fittings to meet the highest industry standard whilst maintaining office illumination levels.
