The Project

1 William Street office tower (1WS) is a landmark tower in the heart of Brisbane’s government precinct. With 44 floors above ground, it is the tallest commercial building in Brisbane. 

Home to the Queensland Government, employees and the general public alike are offered a series of outdoor spaces that promote activity at street level with a dynamic network of pedestrian corridors that will connect the site to its surroundings.

Hydro Construction Products was in a unique position to be able to offer a wide range of trench and sump drainage products to meet all design specifications. At One William Street, there was a clear focus on accessibility, functionality and aesthetics. Hydro’s range of ductile iron and stainless-steel anti slip heelguard gratings satisfied not only legislative requirements (AS 1428.2 Clause 9(c), AS3996) but also met the design brief aesthetically. Hydro Construction Products supplied various polymer trench drainage systems from our MEA Supreme Range with both heavy duty ductile heelguard grating to vehicular traffic areas and stainless steel heelguard grating to most pedestrian only areas.
