The Bond

Norwest, NSW

Timber Office Building in Norwest

Located in the Norwest Business Park, The Bond is a mixed use development currently in the tender design phase. The project consists of 7-storeys of mass timber glulam frame supporting Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) floor and roof panels. It is in a primarily commercial use building which has been designed with an 8.4m x 8.4m structural grid, with a floor to floor height of 3.7m and a ceiling height of 2.6m which results in a reduced structural and services zone. Integrating and coordinating the services strategy within the depth of the structure has been key to the success of this design within the tight floor to floor and zones on this project.

The 13,000 m2 mass timber structure sits on top a 17,000 m2 concrete podium for with two levels of mixed use retail and childcare, and three levels of basement carparking. It will offer unique office space in the area with the use of neatly detailed and exposed mass timber interiors and an adaptable workplace.
