One of Brisbane’s most iconic precincts
Arts Queensland – Cultural Centre
The Cultural Centre Precinct is the centrepiece of Queensland’s arts portfolio and occupies a prime location in Brisbane’s South Bank. The area includes the Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Museum and Sciencentre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre and the State Library of Queensland. We maintain landscapes across this precinct, including a selection of interior plantscapes.
As the heart of Brisbane’s arts precinct, it is paramount that the landscapes of the Cultural Centre Precinct are kept to the highest standards and provide a safe and relaxing facility for the huge numbers of precinct visitors.
Such a prestigious site demands a tailored approach to ensure it’s at its best, 52 weeks a year. We provide a consistent on-site presence with a dedicated team, working to a considered horticultural plan. We work collaboratively with the client team and stakeholders, and this has seen the landscapes thrive and the amenity of the precinct grow. Our arboriculture specialists ensure the safety and wellbeing of significant and heritage-listed trees in the precinct.
As an iconic part of Brisbane’s cityscape, maintaining the Cultural Centre Precinct comes with unique challenges. As the area gets so many visitors, we maintain high levels of safety and compliance at all times, while ensuring visitors are not inconvenienced. On top of this, we need to work around a schedule of regular public events in the space. We must also work closely with a range of stakeholders to make sure we successfully improve the landscape and increase the public’s enjoyment of the area.
Our team make sure that this iconic part of Brisbane has appropriately impressive landscapes, all year round. The Cultural Centre Precinct is always ready for visitors, and all renovation and rectification works are done in a timely manner. Working collaboratively with client and stakeholder teams, we continually improve the landscapes in the precinct to ensure functional, great-looking landscapes.
