480 Queen Street is a 153-meter premium grade office tower in Brisbane , loacted at 480 Queen Street in the Brisbane CBD's golden triangle.The project was developed and constructed by Grocon,in partnetship with the Dexus Property Group.

Project Management Services included developing and implementing the 3d Integrated Project Delivery progress tracking system via the Virtual Construction Model data base and establishing the structural steel fabrication supply chain at Onesteel Metal Center Coopers plains.

Integrated Project Delivery Methodology 

Five (5) boiler makers were engaged from Gay Constructions and established at the end of Onesteels Beam Line operations.

The boilermakers were tasked with fabricating and welding the connections to the processed steel .

Following the fabrication, structural steel was loaded into specially designed transport and handling racks for delivery to the Brisbane CBD Construction Site

The racks were then lifted up the side of the High Rise by Tower Crane for the steel to be erected by the Erection Contractor.

Supply Chain Logistics Management was critical to the success of meeting the tight schedule on this Project.

The supply Chain Logistics Management also included Fabricated Plate Beams and large diameter Pipe Columns that were manufactured in a Perth fabrication shop being transported by Rail to Brisbane
