Construction

Construction of the $3.6B Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development is underway.

To-date the non-heritage buildings that once occupied the space have been demolished, a shoring system has been installed around the future integrated resort development basement, and all excavation materials have been removed as we now turn our attention to the foundations and beginning of construction for the mega structure basement.

Construction of the main integrated resort development including four towers and public space is being done by Principal Contractor Multiplex. For more information about construction, employment and supply opportunities please contact Multiplex direct on 1800 931 760 or email queenswharfbrisbane@multiplex.global.

In addition to the integrated resort development construction activities, maritime work has now commenced in the Brisbane River for construction of the piled suspended concrete slab that will eventually provide 6,500m2 of new public space.  These works are being undertaken by Probuild and for construction, employment or supply opportunities please contact Probuild direct on 1800 676 329 or email: queenswharf@probuild.com.au.

Tendering for the pedestrian bridge that will connect the integrated resort development with South Bank is currently underway and a contractor is expected to be appointed by the end of 2019.
