The Queens Wharf Skydeck, Brisbane

The Queens Wharf Skydeck will be a must-see destination for those seeking spectacular views of Brisbane. Perched 100 meters above the Brisbane River, the Skydeck will provide an open-air observation deck and public realm between the towers of the Queens Wharf Development, offering panoramas of the river, South Bank Parklands and city skyline.

The Skydeck is constructed from steel and is comprised of three spans of 25 m, 30 m and 35 m, bridging between the towers of the development (IT1, IT2, IT3 and IT4). Two spans (IT1-IT2 and IT3-IT4) are designed with permanent movement joints to allow the independent movement of the connected towers. The IT1-2 span presents a unique challenge. It bridges from the side of Tower IT1 from a fixed deck projecting up to 12 m from the tower’s façade line, requiring a sophisticated articulation joint. The spans of the Skydeck are assembled and clad at the podium level, then slid horizontally into position via a rail system, before being vertically strand jacked.
