Construction

Multiple contractors appointed to $3.6B Queen’s Wharf Brisbane integrated resort development.

Destination Brisbane Consortium officially won the right to develop Queen’s Wharf Brisbane in October 2015 and since that time has undertaken a detailed approval process with the Queensland Government for its Plan of Development on the site.

In January 2017 work began onsite with the temporary closure of part of William Street to enable demolition of three non-heritage government buildings. Following that, more than 400,000m3 of material was removed from site making it the largest civil excavation project in Queensland.

Now, after more than three years on site, we are now starting to see the integrated resort development basement structure come up out of the ground and later this year (2020) we expect to see the four towers well above George Street.

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.

Maritime work in the Brisbane River is well advanced and will eventually provide 6,500m2 of new public space to be known as The Landing.  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.

Early works for construction of the Neville Bonner (pedestrian) Bridge commenced in March 2020 on the South Bank side of the river and will be complete in time for the integrated resort development opening in late-2022. Fitzgerald Constructions Australia has been engaged to undertake the bridge works. For construction, employment or supply opportunities please contact them direct at queenswharf@fitzgeraldconstructions.com.au or on 1800 413 951.

Current construction hours are from 6.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday. For occasions when work is required outside these hours, construction notices are issued.
