Brisbane’s Queen’s Wharf to undergo digital transformation
Sydney NSW, Australia
Schneider Electric has officially commenced its digital transformation journey with Queen’s Wharf Brisbane after two years’ preparation. As a technology partner for the high-profile development, Schneider is set to future-proof the precinct with its cutting-edge technology in digital buildings and unrivalled local resources.
Currently the largest development in Queensland, worth $3.6 billion and covering over 26 hectares of land and water, the Queen’s Wharf Development transforms a once underutilised area into a vibrant location of major significance to the Brisbane CBD’s future plans.
The partnership will see Schneider design and implement integrated digital solutions that feature Building Management Systems (BMS), and Integrated System Platforms (ISP) across the whole precinct, including The Star Grand hotel, casino, main podium area, Sky Deck, as well as the Dorsett hotel and Rosewood hotel.
Louise Monger, Vice President of Digital Buildings at Schneider Electric said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to apply Schneider’s world-class expertise in digital buildings to future proof such a significant project for the community.
“Our relationship with the Queen’s Wharf team began in 2017, when we first identified technology to be a key focus for the development. Since then, we have been working closely together to ensure they are supplied with the best tech solutions and customer experience throughout the journey.”
Integrating over 20 building systems across the whole site, Schneider’s tech solution is designed to effectively aggregate data for workflow management and analytics, while achieving the precinct’s sustainability goals. The Building Advisor platform within Schneider’s solution uses machine learning to provide key operational insights and recommendations for improvement.
“As a result, the highly integrated and intelligent system will allow the facility management team to respond to building incidents faster, and drive energy efficiencies,” commented Louise.
Completely locally resourced, the Schneider team has already hit the ground running, and is determined to prevent delays caused by local skill shortages.
Louise added, “In addition to bringing more employment opportunities to the local community, we also pride ourselves on a 100% on-schedule delivery to date for the project, despite border closure. It’s largely because we don’t need to fly technicians from other regions to Brisbane, thanks to Schneider’s strong delivery team on the ground and highly experienced projects delivery leadership.”
Essential to the Brisbane CBD’s future development, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane is scheduled for a staged opening from the first half of 2023.
