The new Grey Street addition to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre at South Bank has recently been opened.
Designed by specialist convention architects Cox Rayner, this dramatic construction includes a five story sky-lit atrium and a façade consisting of 85% glass. Façade engineering was carried out by Arup, and G.James were responsible for the façade supply and installation.
The 25,000 m² expansion on the existing structure has added 50% more convention space, and BCEC is now comparable in size to Australia’s largest convention centre. In addition to aesthetic concerns, the building was designed with the environment in mind – achieving a 5 star green equivalent rating.
More information and further photos of the facility are available on the BCEC website. Let us know what you think of the new façade in the comments below!
