Destination Brisbane Consortium (DBC) has awarded preferred contractor status for the major construction works at the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development.
Multiplex was appointed following a comprehensive tender process, representing a new milestone in the delivery of the overall project.
Works will include the integrated resort development shell and core and the Sky Deck. The contract will include around 370,000 square metres of floor area and 105,000 square metres of energy efficient glazed façade.
DBC Project Director Simon Crooks said the contract still required finalisation and remained subject to DBC board approval and State Government Endorsement.
“The works that Multiplex will deliver include the shell and core works covering the basement, base services, tower structures and the façade of the main integrated resort,” Crooks said.

“It includes the integrated resort high-rise tower shells ready for later fit-out works, the podium level nestled between the towers and the iconic Sky Deck that will sit 100 metres above street level.
“Multiplex will build five levels of basement carpark, the resort back of house facilities including kitchen, laundry, staff cafeteria, amenities and central energy plant.
“The contract is in keeping with our total project cost budget. The next step will be the public confirmation of the contract signing after the State Government has completed its review process.”
Works are set to commence mid-2019 with construction works expected to reach George Street level in late-2020 and the first stage of the Integrated Resort Development for completion in late-2022.
