Cogent Scaffolding wins the contract for 300 George Street

Cogent Scaffolding has announced last week that they've won the contract for scaffolding works at 300 George Street. Cogent has quite an impressive list of past and current projects under their belt so I am sure they will do a fantastic job!

Here's the official statement from them as quoted from their Facebook Page.
300 George Street is Brisbane’s largest integrated CBD Development. 300 George Street would be considered large by any international standards, so for Brisbane this project is simply off the chart!

The site which formally housed Queensland’s old Supreme Courthouse will soon accommodate three ultra-modern glass towers. The hotel will be the first of the three buildings to be constructed and will include a seven-level basement, four-level podium and 305 rooms. Future stages of the development will include construction of a 40-level commercial office tower and an 82-level residential tower, which when completed will be Brisbane’s second tallest building, standing 262 metres high.
The developers behind this project are a joint venture between Shayher Group and Bao Jia Development and Brookfield Multiplex has been awarded the construction contract for the Hotel.

Cogent Scaffolding has worked with Brookfield Multiplex on a number of major projects in Brisbane including the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Rhapsody Surfers North and the Ibis Hotel. Here at Cogent we strive to build strong, long-term business relationships with our clients, based on integrity, collaboration and open communication. We are very proud of the work we have done with Brookfield Multiplex and eagerly anticipate the beginning of this exciting new project for Brisbane’s CBD.
