  • GDP Growth
  • Population
Excitement in Queensland continues to build around the 2032 Olympic Games. Coupled with record interstate migration to Queensland that has driven the largest population growth of any Australian state, Queensland is in an exciting phase. Compared to pre-COVID-19 levels, the Queensland economy is 7.8% larger and outperforming Australia’s national average.

These factors have led to increased demand for housing and communal spaces that prioritise health, safety, and accessibility. Significant investment is being made to upgrade the transport infrastructure network – catering to the needs of the growing population.

David Farah, Director - QLD/NT, affirms, “Queensland is currently an exceptional place to be, as numerous city-shaping projects are being planned and delivered. With our established presence, we are ideally positioned to contribute to these amazing projects, which will undoubtedly enhance the state’s future liveability.”

Throughout the fiscal year 2023, BG&E has been actively involved in multiple projects that are instrumental in shaping the state and preparing Queensland to host the highly anticipated 2032 Games. Additionally, our team has made significant contributions during 2022 and 2023 to assist in the recovery efforts following the devastating impacts of the February 2022 floods that ravaged Northern NSW and Southeast Queensland.

Our teams in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Townsville continue to deliver outstanding outcomes for our clients through partnership and technical excellence:

  • The Coomera Connector is Queensland's largest road infrastructure project, funded by the Australian and Queensland governments. It will create a 45km high-speed corridor connecting the Pacific Motorway at Coomera to the Logan Motorway at Loganholme. BG&E, in collaboration with ACCIONA and Georgiou, is responsible for designing Stage 1 North (CC North) of the project, which spans from Coomera to Nerang. Despite challenges such as constrained corridors, complex ground conditions, and environmental constraints, our team has successfully delivered a high-quality and efficient design solution that meets community and stakeholder needs.
  • Hope Island Station, part of the Cross River Rail New Gold Coast Stations program, is an elevated rail station, bus station, and park 'n' ride facility. Working with ACCIONA and Georgiou, BG&E is delivering the design and construction through an Early Contractor Involvement phase. Our integrated delivery team has ensured seamless integration between Hope Island Station and the Coomera Connector North Project, reducing interface risks and achieving outstanding project outcomes. The optimised site and multi-modal integration will enhance the customer experience and support the success of the 2032 Games through active and public transport.
  • Our Buildings team is at the forefront of design for integrated, mixed-use developments and has recently completed for Lendlease the civil and structural design of the Bernborough Ascot Retirement Village – a high quality, vertical inner-city residential community co-located with a bespoke aged care facility in Brisbane. This pioneering development is set to be one of the most sustainable retirement communities in Australia, securing the sector’s first 6-Star Green Star Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). Working with partners Lendlease, St Hilliers, BRC, Brisbane City Council, Cotter Parker and the wider delivery team, we have applied specialised design management and concrete structure expertise, enabling seamless integration with existing structures, future expansions, and sustainable solutions. Our approach prioritises long-term value, including the provision of healthy and accessible housing.
  • Our Gold Coast team, led by Max Gregori, is performing a critical role as Principal Consultant in the design delivery of the Natural Disaster Program for TMR South Coast. The team is assisting TMR’s region to connect communities and support regional economic recovery after disaster events damaged the state-controlled road network in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023. Our team is recognised by the community and throughout the client organisation for their dedication, technical excellence, and timeliness in providing project management and pragmatic engineering solutions in a highly constrained program of works. The team is also supporting Tweed Shire Council with the design of several significant reconstruction sites.

Our team is humbled by this opportunity and proud of the service it is providing to the community. From site inspections by our junior Engineers and Designers to performing engineering and environmental investigations to address complex and sizeable damage, we have been able to respond to the demanding needs of this challenging project since 2020.
