Centered around the Brisbane River, Brisbane city is the cosmopolitan, subtropical heart of south east Queensland and one of Australia's fastest growing capital cities.
Arup has enjoyed a strong presence in Brisbane since 1978. The firm's work is best characterised by its involvement in iconic projects that make a mark on the local landscape – including a number of stunning bridges and structures such as the multi-award winning Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Gallery of Modern Art, Kurilpa pedestrian bridge and the Go Between Bridge.
Arup's contribution to strategic water infrastructure planning (in Gladstone and North Queensland) and work on major infrastructure planning at Brisbane Airport and on the Airport Link, Northern Busway and Airport Roundabout project – Australia's largest ever road infrastructure project – is helping to secure the state's future.
With close links to all levels of government and major contractors, Arup involvement in the city's future development will continue to be significant as the city strives for modern, sustainable infrastructure solutions.
