FUTURE BNE AUTO MALL LAND DEVELOPMENT (STAGES 1, 2 & 3)
>Timing: September 2017 to 2019
> Investment: $85 million
> Construction jobs: 300+
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is investing $85m+ in major earth and civil works as part of the delivery of the planned BNE Auto Mall and Test Track at Brisbane Airport.
The BNE Auto Mall vision is to deliver a multi purpose auto retailing hub that sees flagship dealerships sitting alongside exhibition and conference activities, hotels, event area, driver training schools and regional offices around a multi-purpose test track.
The first phase of preparatory works involves the clearing, filling and surcharging of 51 hectares of currently unused land between Moreton and Airport Drives, close to both the International and Domestic Terminals.
When complete the proposed land development and civil works will deliver:
• A cleared, filled, surcharged and serviced site of 38 hectares of leasable land to be divided into a planed 27 lots
• Fully serviced and landscaped roads providing access and connections to Airport Drive and Nancy Bird Way
• A 2.5km certified professional test track
MUTLI-LEVEL CAR PARKS LED LIGHTING UPGRADE
> Timing: March to October 2017
Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) commitment to sustainability has been highlighted once again with the successful completion of a major Car Park lighting initiative that has seen power usage slashed by nearly 60%.
The project centred on the P1 and P2 car parks at the Domestic Terminal as well as in the multi-level car park at the International terminal, with more than 10,000 fluorescent lights replaced by modern, energy saving LED equivalents.
"Our goal was to achieve significant reductions through the installation of energy efficient lighting and I'm proud to say that in just the first month of operation power usage at the three car parks has dropped by between 55% and 60% which is a fantastic outcome,” explained Martin Ryan, Head of Parking and Transport Services.
"To enhance energy savings yet maintain a suitable level of safety, the luminaries above the parking bays use a sensor to dim or brighten when vehicle or pedestrian movement is detected, while fittings along the roadways still maintain 100% brightness," he said.
The pioneering initiative is not just a cost saver for BAC, it is also a win for the environment, with the new LED lights reducing carbon emissions on airport by an estimated 2925 tonnes of CO2 per year, equivalent to 270 average households.
The energy-efficient lighting is not the only innovative part of the project, thanks to a ground-breaking deal that saw the lights installed with zero upfront capital expense to BAC and zero maintenance costs for the next six years.
Instead the contractor will be paid a percentage of the monthly energy savings each month, while at the same time maintaining all the systems .
BAC SOLAR UPGRADE
> Timing: October 2017 to December 2018
> Investment: $11 million
> Construction jobs: 40+
As part of our commitment to renewable energy, Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is investing $11m in a major Solar PV project across six sites on Airport.
When complete the innovative project will deliver:
• 19,200 new Solar PV panels, generating 6 Megawatts (MWp) of renewable energy per year
• The largest roof top solar panel installation at an Australian airport (7300 panels over 26,000 square metres at the International Terminal)
• Once fully operational, will account for 18 per cent of BAC’s direct electricity consumption or 6 per cent of the total airport consumption
• Reduced carbon emissions by an estimated 8000 tonne of CO2 per year, equivalent to 750 average households.
AIRPORT INDUSTRIAL PARK
> Timing: September 2015 to Mid 2020
> Investment: $28 million
> Construction jobs: 75
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is continuing to develop a new Airport Industrial Park (AIP) between Boronia Road South, Lomandra Drive and the Southern Connector drain.
Work on the 25 hectares site began in early September 2015, with the overall project likely to take three to four years. Lots for building development will be ready in stages.
Bulk earthworks will see the project team supply and place 700,000 cublic metres of fill, as well as relocate another 300,000m3, taking the overall replacement past 1 million cublic metres.
Entry to and exit from the site is via Boronia Road South with this section of road for AUTHORISED VEHICLES ONLY .
In the interests of safety, there is NO UNAUTHORISED VEHICLE OR PEDESTRIAN ACCESS with local workers urged to consider NOT using the area for lunchtime walks.
The Da Vinci Precinct can still be accessed via Boronia Road North, Da Vinci Boulevard and Leonardo Drive.
