Brisbane City, QLD
Client: Vicinity Centres
Year Completed: 2019
With a combination of heritage listed and modern buildings making up Queen’s Plaza, a comprehensive maintenance and repair programme was essential for its longevity as a Brisbane icon.
Bennett + Bennett were commissioned to capture any existing defects or potential areas of concern so that maintenance and rectification planning could be
scheduled in. Due to public exposure and the inner city location, undertaking the elevated imagery for this survey by means of a drone was not a feasible option. Instead, it required various traffic control methods to balance the interruption to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic ensuring business as usual in Brisbane’s CBD.
Bennett + Bennett showed versatility, using a 40 metre drop boom under flood lights at night to minimize impact on retailers and the public and capture the desired images. We then assisted in a grading system to categorize urgency of any defects.
