“T3 Collingwood” Will be One of Melbourne’s Tallest Hybrid Mass Timber Buildings

The Melbourne, Australia, suburb of Collingwood will soon be home to a hybrid timber tower. Designed by Jackson Clements Burrows (JCB), the sustainable commercial office will comprise of 15 stories: 10 levels of timber tower on top of five levels of reinforced concrete as the podium.

Dubbed “T3 Collingwood” because of its adoption of a “timber, transit, and technology-oriented development methodology,” the building will use 4,000 cubic meters of timber for the structural frame supplied by local manufacturers, fixing in place around 3,000 tons of carbon.

Scheduled to be completed in mid-to-late 2023, T3 Collingwood is slated to be one of Melbourne’s tallest hybrid mass timber buildings, delivering reduced emissions by as much as 40% during the construction phase. Once fully operational, the building will target net zero carbon emissions in its day-to-day functions.
