Lendlease have received approval for a second engineered timber office building in Barangaroo South.

The building, which will be known as Daramu House, translated to tree house in the aboriginal Sydney language.

Its construction will follow the completion of International House Sydney at Barangaroo in 2017.

Daramu House will be Lendlease’s sixth engineered timber building in Australia.

The new building, which will be completed in late 2019, will front Hickson Road and will consist of more than 10,000 sqm of commercial floor space and around 680 sqm of new retail.

Daramu House will include the use of sustainable timbers, as well as roof-top planting to capture rain, and solar photo-voltaic cells to enable power to the building and the precinct.

Barangaroo South managing director Rob Deck said Daramu House will provide tenants with health and wellbeing benefits combined with a warm, clean and natural environment.

“This building will be Lendlease’s sixth engineered timber building in Australia, joining its neighbour, International House Sydney as well as 25 King St in Brisbane, the Forte Apartments and Library at The Dock in Melbourne, and the Jordan Springs Community Hub in Western Sydney," Deck said.

“With engineering by Lendlease’s DesignMake business, Daramu House will offer ground level retail tenancies, six floors of office space constructed from cross laminated timber and glulam (glue laminated timber), a building material with a structural strength akin to concrete and steel.

“Lendlease is committed to achieving innovative and sustainable solutions. Barangaroo South has already achieved Australia’s first 6 star Green Star Communities rating and WELL Certification for Core & Shell at the Platinum level, the highest certification available.
