1 William Street

Woods Bagot


The tallest commercial building in Brisbane, 1 William Street provides a new integrated workplace for the Queensland public service and a significant and striking addition to the Brisbane skyline. A major catalyst project for the wider waterfront precinct, the project offered the opportunity to develop a landmark commercial office tower and reintegrate an undervalued section of the foreshore back into the physical and social fabric of Brisbane City.

The project vision was to design a landmark commercial office tower to accommodate the Queensland Public Service while providing a symbol of Queensland's strong sense of purpose, identity and confidence in its future. Positioned at the fringe of the Brisbane CBD, the tower is designed to look outwards toward the interior of the state, sending a strong message of inclusion, a commitment to reflecting the needs of the people of Queensland and an ethic of an open and engaged public service.

Through clever design and innovative solutions, 1 William Street provides an energy efficient building that contributes to the health and wellbeing of users. The building features practical sustainability measures to maximise energy efficiency and take advantage of Brisbane's subtropical climate. The building has achieved a 6 Star Green Star Office As Built v3 rating, a 5.5 star NABERS office energy rating and a 4 star NABERS office water usage rating.

Driven by high standards of architectural design and best practice workplace design, 1 William Street has revolutionised workplace standards for the public service in Queensland and set the benchmark for government accommodation across Australia.
