CDM Smith Partners with Brisbane Powerhouse to Achieve Environmental Sustainability

The iconic Brisbane Powerhouse is striving for a sustainable future by encouraging environmentally friendly practices and energy efficiency for the precinct and local community.

January 14, 2014

QUEENSLAND, Australia—CDM Smith is excited to be partnering with Brisbane Powerhouse on a program to develop and achieve a range of environmental sustainability goals. Brisbane Powerhouse was once an abandoned coal-fired power station, but has since been redeveloped into a vibrant performing arts venue providing international and local experiences. Due to its historical significance and strong ties to the local community, the Brisbane Powerhouse is dedicated to paving a more sustainable future for both the venue and the Brisbane precinct.

With our national head office in Brisbane and numerous projects in surrounding areas, CDM Smith shares a vested community interest and is proud to be an official business partner of Brisbane Powerhouse. To help fulfill this vision of a sustainable future, CDM Smith will be working closely with Brisbane Powerhouse to continue its transformation towards an energy-efficient performance space, developing a formal environmental management system and identifying lasting energy efficiency and clean energy production opportunities, while taking into account the site’s previous use as an active power station.

Brisbane Powerhouse is one of the most programmed arts venue in the Southern Hemisphere, and is among the most innovative and lively arts centres in the world. The iconic venue and not-for-profit organisation hosts an incredibly diverse array of cultural, entertainment and educational performances, festivals and free events and CDM Smith is proud to be providing our extensive environmental sustainability experience to assist the centre.
