The Queen’s Wharf Brisbane demolition and enabling works package includes almost a kilometre of site hoarding, demolition of three non-heritage former government buildings (80 George Street, 100 George Street and 74 William Street), heritage building protection and maintenance, and major service diversions including gas, telecommunications, water and electricity.
When complete in 2022, the integrated resort development will transform the Brisbane CBD through its unique and vibrant development. With five luxury hotels including 5 and 6 star options, 50 restaurants, cafes and bars alongside high-end and bespoke retail options, the development will also include more than 12 football fields of free and accessible public space.
In total, nine heritage buildings and two heritage parks within the precinct will be incorporated into the final design. These heritage treasures will be beautifully restored and repurposed into a range of cultural, retail, dining, hotel, entertainment and tourist attraction spaces.
Probuild has been engaged for demolition and enabling works, which will see the site being made ready for major excavation work due to begin in early 2018. At approximately 13 hectares, across land and water, the precinct occupies approximately 10% of the Brisbane CBD area, and Probuild is tasked to remove 160,000 tonnes of material during the demolition of three of the city’s former government buildings.
The entire integrated resort development at Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will take around seven years to complete, however, the core of the development is slated to open in 2022.
