30 Sep Historic Printery Building to be restored
The Queensland Government Printing Office is a heritage-listed printing house at 110 George Street and 84 William Street, Brisbane City. It was built in 1887 and added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.
As the first purpose-built government printing office in Queensland, the Government Printing Office played an important role in the administration of the colony and then the state of Queensland.
Many items were printed on the premises, including Hansard, the official report of the proceedings of the Houses of Parliament, postage stamps, Government Gazettes, Acts of Parliament, annual reports of departments, survey maps, textbooks, electoral rolls, school readers, and banknotes
Working with Multiplex, we’re so happy to have been awarded the scaffolding contract for the restoration of the Queensland Governments Printing Office, on George Street Brisbane.
We’ll be providing a perimeter scaffold wrap to the building, various forms of access and taking special care not to damage this old gem whilst Multiplex completes the restoration works.
When completed, this building will house DFS’ three-level T Galleria Emporium plus a myriad of its luxury brands, including Louis Vuitton, housed across 16 free-standing stores – will make up the majority of the shopping precinct at Queen’s Wharf which would feature destination retail products from more than 100 brands.
