15 Oct Construction update – Jubilee Place
Jubilee Place’s impressive Blight Rayner design is well on its way to completion, with an expected delivery date from Besix Watpac scheduled for the end of this year. The steel diagrid structure is now complete, wrapping the full height of the building including the iconic rooftop trellis. Functional work is also nearing completion, as the building’s rooftop top plant has been lifted into place ready for commissioning.
From day one, the ethos of Jubilee Place has been to create a sustainable workplace that engages with its surrounding environment. The inspired design behind making this a reality is now becoming more visible as the high-performance clear façade is nearing completion.
Jubilee Place’s next generation workspaces are also taking shape. Spaces and Besix Watpac’s fitouts are coming together nicely, ready for opening at Practical Completion of the base building.
Finishes including brickwork, tiling, ceilings, and landscaping in the unique dual level lobby and public plaza are rapidly coming together in readiness for the installation of the specially commissioned artwork.
JGL’s ongoing collaboration with artists continues to enrich our design process. With Jubilee Place in particular, our extraordinary collaboration with Ben Quilty – to create a monumental 7 metre by 3 metre artwork to be placed in the dual level lobby – integrates art into the fabric of this unique building, shaping its relationship to the public realm.
