Construction will commence with the excavation of the site in June 2017.

Farrow Completes Design of 44 Storey Grip Metal Global Timber Tower

December 2, 2016. Farrow has unveiled the design for the Grip Global Tower. The 44 storey tower has an unconventional geometry and uses new hybrid structural components in wood, steel and concrete including: Dual concrete cores; Perimeter steel/wood diagrid using Grip bonded steel and wood in upper levels; Composite wood-concrete infill floor slabs using thin ultra-high performance fibre reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) bonded to mass wood panels using Grip; Precast concrete perimeter beams for each floor; and Cross-Laminated Timber party walls. The geometry changes from floor to floor which makes prefabrication a preferred method of construction for this tower.
