The Southbank Parklands are iconically Queensland with swimming facilities, walking tracks, food and beverage venues, and the home of a year-round calendar of events. The community welcomed the precinct’s rejuvenation, and Southbank Parkland will be a space that locals and visitors will enjoy for many years to come.
Integral Group worked with architects Hassell Studio and a local manufacturer on a custom luminaire and designed a complete lighting control matrix and detailing lighting poles with integrated communication technology (ICT) devices. The design team identified the impact of surrounding and ambient city light as a challenge. By conducting midnight lighting tests, Integral Group mitigated unsuitable lighting selection early in the design phases.
Southbank Parklands is a popular event space, and the use of services fluctuates. The client set forth a challenge to design services and lighting that were easily accessible during events but had a seamless appearance when not being used. The project team ensured a quality installation by incorporating LED strip lighting and stainless-steel enclosures into the design and focusing heavily on future provision for power and communication in every lighting pole.
