The building was designed not only with the purpose of reinvigorating the under-utilised Breakfast Creek Wharf precinct, but to reinvent the customer experience when perusing and buying vehicles.
Located on the old Breakfast Creek Wharf site in Newstead, the Mercedes Benz Autohaus creates an important landmark for the Mercedes Benz brand epitomising modern elegance and luxury.
The $110 million project was carefully designed with a complex, yet deliberate architectural vision, and a premium level of finish rarely seen at this scale. Housing the headquarters of anchor tenant, Mercedes-Benz in Brisbane, the project features an automotive dealership and care centre, a flagship showroom, a 539 sqm automotive museum, staff training centre, service workshop, various shops and cafes, rooftop restaurant, dining and function area, as well as a garden pavilion.
The project covered the D&C of the 7-level base building, as well as the subsequent tenant fitout for the facility.
As one of the first projects in Australia to utilise in-house Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, our team was able to collaborate extensively with our customer and specialist consultants during the design and planning stages. This allowed us to deliver the project on time and mitigate risks associated with the structure, including a basement being built on the Brisbane River.
