One of South East Queensland’s most innovative and exciting construction projects, Brisbane Quarter 300 George Street, was featured at the 2019 Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards, with Beavis and Bartels taking home the QLeave Commercial & Industrial Technical Award.
Brisbane Quarter encompasses a complete city block with Brisbane River views and will include Australia’s first purpose built W Hotel. It also includes two levels of riverside dining and luxury retail shopping beneath a 40 storey state of the art Prime Grade office tower, as well as an 82 storey luxury residential apartment building.
All towers had complex systems including cold water, stormwater, hot water, sanitary plumbing and drainage systems. The natural gas system which has been installed serves the entire complex. This system is one of the largest in Brisbane City and one of the most diverse, as it serves all three towers and every single commercial tenancy on the podium.
Hosted by Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) in partnership with Event Partner Tradelink, the Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards aim to highlight the hard work and dedication invested into the industry by apprentices, plumbers, gasfitters, hydraulic consultants and other industry individuals.
This year the sell-out awards recognised individuals and companies in 18 categories and hosted VIPs including the Minister for Housing and Public Works, Digital Technology and Sport, the Hon. Mick de Brenni MP, the Shadow Minister for Housing and Public Works, Energy, Innovation and Digital Technology, Michael Hart MP, State Secretary for the Plumbers Union Qld, Gary O’Halloran and Commissioner of the Queensland Building and Construction Commission, Brett Bassett.
