Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre Facilities Expansion


Client: South Bank Corporation
Value: $130m
Project Timeframe: 2007
Services Provided: Project Management, Project Programming


RCP was engaged by South Bank Corporation to provide full project management and project programming services for the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre extension.

The new facilities were fully integrated with the existing Convention Centre building providing a seamless experience through the complex. The building extension provides a ‘grand street’ address and entry from Grey Street, with direct access to the new facilities. The building also includes 600 and 400 seat auditoriums, meeting rooms and banquet / ballrooms ranging in size from 145m2 to 730m2, with retail and restaurants on the ground level.

The design incorporated a rainfall harvesting system to take advantage of the Centre’s expansive roof. The water is used to supplement the Parkland gardens and lawns as well as being recycled within the building for non-potable uses.

RCP’s services included project management, project programming, design management, procurement and delivery strategy and contract administration services.
