Key to the success of the project is the consortium’s single-minded focus on operational efficiency, design and build quality, and value for money. From the initial bid to the grand opening, the team worked together to deliver the best long-term solutions for Brisbane City Council and the Parkinson community.
- Brisbane City Council required a facility that would satisfy the needs of the community, be delivered on time and within budget. The facility must also be of good quality to ensure it remains a lasting asset for the community.
- Liquid Blu Architects created a sense of light and spaciousness in a facility with distinctive design elements. The design includes large, well defined functional spaces, modern finishes and room for future growth. This design philosophy attracts customers and makes the facility an enjoyable place to spend time. It also provides options for the Facility Operator to grow and expand.
- Spantech was responsible for ensuring the design was buildable and achievable within the time frame and budget constraints. Spantech brought to the project a unique collection of construction technology, methods and project management experience. This included the Pinkenba 370 curved roof, fast Spantech suspended flooring system and more than 30 years of experience building sports and aquatic centre facilities. Spantech also ensured the materials and installed equipment were resilient and high quality to extend the life of the facility and reduce ongoing maintenance costs for the operator.
- City Venue Management focused on creating a functional facility that can be operated efficiently and profitably for an extended period of time. Careful consideration was given to public safety, staff levels, operational efficiency and ongoing maintenance.
By working collaboratively, each member of the team was able to deliver their component with due consideration to the other members of the team, thereby delivering a project that benefits all key stakeholders, particularly Brisbane City Council and the public.
