John Holland has reached a major milestone in the construction of its new headquarters, topping out the building on Melbourne’s Flinders Street.
The company is building 180 Flinders Street for Dexus and will be the anchor tenant when it is completed by 2020.
It will act as a location to bring John Holland’s corporate and regional offices together and is set to benefit from the construction of the Metro Tunnel, which is also being delivered by John Holland.
Demolition works commenced in September 2018, followed by construction in October 2018. Works have so far required around 1000 tonnes of steel, 440 precast panels and 2500 cubic metres of concrete.
Construction works will continue to build the building façade, internal works and heritage facade.
