This new landmark development in the heart of the
CBD incorporates the city’s past, present and future.
BOLLIG DESIGN GROUP
his complex inner-city development
including a 1000sqm landscaped
entrance piazza, 45,000sqm of office
space, 10,000sqm of retail, a 600-seat
food hall, over 350 car bays, and a pedestrian
retail tunnel under William Street (linking to the
underground railway station) – provides a new
landmark destination for the City of Perth.
The main entrance to the development
is a 1000sqm landscaped forecourt set within
the city’s urban environment. It provides a unique
transition between heritage and contemporary
architecture, and a formal entrance to the office
tower and retail.
The new office building was designed for
the anchor tenant, Bankwest, and incorporates
the highest-quality materials throughout,
including a high-performance double glazed
curtain wall skin with integrated sunshades
which reduces the thermal load to the building.
It also incorporates materials that, despite
having high-embodied energy in terms of their
manufacture, have very low-embodied energy
in regards to long-term maintenance issues.
Throughout the project’s design stage there
was a large focus on the life-cycle costing
of the building. The building includes major
technological innovations with the adoption
of Australia’s first twin lifts, where two lifts
operate independently in a single shaft, saving
on construction cost and time while maximising
office floor-plate efficiencies.
The development of the Raine Square building,
which covers nearly an entire city block, reflects
a four-star Green Star environmental design,
ensuring the tenants’ ongoing commitment to
environmental sustainability by minimising
ongoing energy usage while continuing to
maximise their internal comfort.
The unique location of this facility within
Perth’s CBD, combined with the substantial
nature of the building, has resulted in a landmark
commercial development within the city’s
centre that also provides a crucial link to the new
Northbridge redevelopment area.
The completion of the $300 million Raine
Square project and transition to tenant fit-out
was achieved in November 2011.
