JUST APPROVED – The World record-breaking C6 Perth mass timber skyscraper standing 51 stories or 191 m tall. It’s a $350 million carbon-negative residential high-rise that will have 237 apartments, with 4,700 sq ft (437sq m) of public park. The project was granted approval with conditions in late September by the Metro Inner South Joint Development Assessment Panel.
James Dibble from Grange Development says the equation is simple: offset concrete (where it is needed and most appropriate) as a carbon-intensive material with a #CarbonSequestering material to help our industry do its bit to tackle a global problem. All the timber for C6 will be regenerated in just 2 hours and 29 minutes from one region alone. You can’t grow concrete, C6 is the future of sustainable cities,” he said. It was designed by award-winning Tier 1 architect Elenberg Fraser.
“C6 is more than a building, it’s a new building system that inverts the carbon diagram – from carbon creation to carbon capture and sequestration. An architecture of consequence.” – Callum Fraser
