Rio Tinto cuts desks at new hybrid Brisbane office

Commodities giant Rio Tinto expects to welcome back 1200 employees to its newly renovated office in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, which has been designed for a hybrid workforce.

The Midtown Centre location, which officially opened on 24 May 2021, was built by joining and repurposing two old Queensland government buildings – Forestry House and Health House – into one office tower to create oversized floors.

“It’s not just a new building, it’s part of our new journey to a new culture. We want to make an environment where people want to come to work, where people actually want to connect”.
