The webinar will feature Matt Nolan, Practice Director at Lat27 speaking on two different projects: The Plaza, Brisbane Showgrounds showcasing how heavy-duty drainage and access lids were integrated into the event space and 480 Queen St in Brisbane CBD featuring custom architectural stainless steel applications. 

This course empowers designers who are focused on walkability in public areas by correctly integrating surface water systems and service pits.  The focus is to create successful flat drainable pavements with an appreciation of slot criteria, slip resistance, loading, durability and access for maintenance. 

The Plaza, Brisbane Showgrounds 
Client: Lendlease & RNA 

The Plaza signified the start of the regeneration of the Brisbane Showgrounds precinct – the largest brownfield development of its kind in Australia.

The Plaza is the front door to the new Royal International Convention Centre (RICC). Its flexible design supports a variety of exhibition and event overlays while establishing high quality public space for the emerging inner-city community. It establishes critical pedestrian connections between King Street, the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and rail and bus infrastructure.

The design optimised a range of industrial stormwater drains that are directed through bio basins and heavy-duty access lids between the custom pavements.

480 Queen Street
Client: Dexus – 480 Queen Street
Landscape Architects: Lat27

Hobbs Park echoes Lat27’s ethos of providing high quality contextual public spaces by applying ‘creativity at all scales’.

This public park sits over the former gardens of Adelaide House, Queensland’s first Government House. Established by Dr William Hobbs, the gardens extended down to the river through scenes of forested edges, sneaky river glimpses and the Petrie Bight beyond. 

The design is a combination of a contemporary adaptation of Hobbs garden with qualities of the adjacent rock face.

ACO worked closely with Lat27 to develop custom stainless-steel drainage and access system to seamlessly integrate to the stone tiling pattern. 
Themes are space, safety, attractiveness, connectivity, integration of key pavement elements to create meaning and the integration of service to enhance function: water & cable management. 


Ideal for: Landscape Architects, Hydraulic Consultants, Architects and Contractors.
