Queensland Tennis Centre
Client: Mirvac Queensland Pty Ltd
The former site of the historic Tennyson Power Station on the Brisbane River at Tennyson in Brisbane’s south has been transformed over the last 5 years in to a new premium residential precinct and the Queensland Tennis Centre by developer Mirvac.
The new $82 million Queensland Tennis Centre was officially opened by the Premier of Qld, Anna Bligh MP on the 2nd January 2009 with the centrepiece being the 5,500 seat Pat Rafter Arena. Adjoining the new State Tennis Centre is the new residential development, Tennyson Reach. Tennyson Reach has an approximate value of over $600 million and includes 390 luxury apartments in 6 buildings adjacent to the Brisbane River. Construction of Stages 1 has just been completed with Stage 2 to be completed early 2010. A new public riverfront parkland will also be delivered, the first stage in early 2010.
Lambert & Rehbein provided both civil engineering and environmental consultancy services for the project. This included:
- Initial input through the bid process;
- Development of the masterplan in conjunction with the project team;
- Preparation of specialist reports for development approval from Council;
- Detailed design for the major civil infrastructure (roads, stormwater, sewer and water) for the whole site; and
- Construction stage services.
Lambert & Rehbein worked closely with both Mirvac and Brisbane City Council to successfully deliver the works in the particularly short time frame required to enable the inaugural Brisbane International, at the Queensland Tennis Centre in January 2009.
