Queen’s Wharf – the Jewel in Brisbane’s Crown

The A$3.6 billion world-class Queen’s Wharf Brisbane integrated resort is being delivered on program by global construction company Multiplex for Destination Brisbane Consortium. 

Queen’s Wharf is the only integrated resort development currently being built in the world and is destined to put Brisbane on the map as a tourism, leisure and entertainment destination.

Redefining the skyline along the Brisbane River, the project will comprise of three hotels and one residential tower connected by a 100-metre high Sky Deck.

The precinct will be home to up to 2,000 residential apartments, more than 1,000  hotel   rooms,   a   1,500 plus seated  ballroom, 50 restaurants and bars, world-class gaming and luxury retail.  Luxury brands, including  Louis  Vuitton, will be housed   across 16 free-standing stores on the podium   levels, currently under construction.

Architects Cottee Parker, have designed the development with a Queensland aesthetic in mind – subtropical landscaping, timber and stone features all complimenting the nine heritage buildings surrounding the project. Upon completion in late-2022, over 7.5 hectares of public space will be rejuvenated, including the popular Bicentennial Bikeway which runs through the development and connects active transport users and pedestrians to the city.

Multiplex Regional Managing Director Graham Cottam said Multiplex is proud to be involved in Queen’s Wharf Brisbane, a once in a generation project for the Sunshine State’s capital.

“We are excited to deliver the most transformative project Brisbane has seen in decades. Queen’s Wharf will be unlike anything seen in South East Queensland before, with the public Sky Deck a key feature of this iconic project,” he said. What goes on behind the scenes at Queensland’s largest development is a sophisticated Building Information Modelling (BIM) system which simulates works digitally before building starts.

Multiplex Project Director Dayne May said BIM has played a key role in the planning and coordination of the project.

“From the more complex builds, to coordinating trades – this technology has played a huge part in not only programming, but also determining the best way to safely install complex components,” he said.

“Due to the range of prefabricated elements from plumbing to drainage systems, structural steel and precast concrete – BIM has enabled the project team to model the safest and fastest way to sequence works,”

“This type of technology is a benefit to the project due to the scale at which we are building – Queen’s Wharf covers an area of 12 hectares, with multiple construction faces across four towers,” he said.

Multiplex started work on the project in July 2019, and through Multiplex, over 1,500 people will work on-site during construction peak this year.

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development is being delivered by Destination Brisbane Consortium – a joint venture led by The Star Entertainment Group alongside its Hong Kong-based partners, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium.

Multiplex has extensive experience building luxury high-rise developments across the business. The global contractor has recently completed stage one of the iconic new Southbank precinct at Melbourne Square as well as the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest new super high-rise residential tower Australia 108. Other high-profile mixed-use developments currently under construction include Destination Gold Coast Tower 2 and the new Sydney Fish Market.
