Trade Coast Bus Depot

The Trade Coast bus depot is a major local government infrastructure project to service the growth in demand for public transportation in the Brisbane City Council municipality.

The Council relocated the Toowong bus building facility to this purpose-built centre at Eagle Farm in conjunction with council’s bus body manufacturing partner, Volgren Australia.

ADCO managed the Green Star process from early in the design stage, throughout construction to detailed submission. This resulted in the Green Building Council of Australia awarding the project a 5 Star Green Star Design and As Built Rating under Version 1 of the Industrial Rating Tool.  This was the first project in Queensland to achieve this rating.

The project combined large scale industrial construction with in excess of 25,000m² of hard stand pavement area over the sites large 8.8 hectares.
