MULTIPLEX has completed Fivex’s $24 million Riverview House commercial office building overlooking the busy intersection of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street, at an entrance to Flinders Street train station, in Melbourne’s CBD.

The new five-level building delivers 4,000 sqm of lettable office space and is connected to the existing tower lobby via a bridge link at each level.

Riverview House was required innovative construction methods, including the use of lightweight materials such as a modular structural steel grid and cross-laminated timber floor panels to limit the need to strengthen the existing structure below, and to enable compliance with engineering codes, while the project needed to be carried out over an active environment given the site’s location on a busy CBD corner.

“The building had many challenges from a design point of view. Balancing a new structure on top of a fully-occupied three-storey podium floors while achieving code compliance created unique design issues,” said partner of architects Baldasso Cortese, Murray Brassington.

Fivex’s 276 Flinders Street has podium and ground levels comprising a fitness and childcare centre and a range of retail and food stores.
