PDC, now known as DBM Vircon, has been awarded the prestigious 2019 buildingSMART International Award in the Design category for their work on Queens Wharf Brisbane.
Queen’s Wharf Brisbane is a world-class integrated resort development that will transform the Central Business District (CBD) and river’s edge. The Destination Brisbane Consortium is delivering the $3.6 billion development, which will cover more than 26 hectares across land and water—equivalent to 10% of Brisbane’s CBD.
The development encompasses 50 new bars, cafes and restaurants; 2,000 apartments across three residential towers; and more than 1,100 premium hotel rooms operating under four hotel brands, one with a casino.
There is plenty of public space integrated into the design of the development as well: the equivalent of 12 football fields. This public space will help to accommodate the additional 1.39 million visitors expected in Brisbane as a result of the project. Impressively, the development is also sustainable, having earned a 6-star Green Star Communities rating.
In delivering the project, 16 different pieces of software were utilised by 39 contributing organisations. PDC (DBM Vircon) had over 340 models under management, with 215 individual models processed weekly.
