Riverland Brisbane

Riverland is a beer garden and dining venue located in Emirates House on Brisbane’s Eagle Street, in the busy CBD office and dining precinct. Enjoying panoramic Brisbane River views, the project involved the refurbishment of the existing office tower podium level to accommodate the new venue.
Creating a new and exciting bar and dining venue for Brisbane

Having established the Riverland brand, Open Arms Hospitality had a desire to enter the Brisbane market to create a beer garden and dining site, breathing new life into the Emirates House high-rise building and taking advantage of the riverside location and views. The development included a new bar and several food outlets surrounded by outdoor dining areas, complemented by new landscaping, shading devices and feature lighting.

Designing feature lighting and additional services

DMA Engineers worked with the project architect to design additional services to support the new prefabricated bar and food outlets including water services, trade waste, sanitary waste, power and data/telecommunication, sprinklers, kitchen exhaust systems and air conditioning services. Fire engineered solutions were provided to address the fire risk associated with the new structures on the existing tower building.

Working closely with the architect, feature lighting was designed to create the ambience the client had envisioned for a comfortable and engaging space.This included installing lighting control systems to allow the ambience to be tailored to complement various entertainment scenarios including performance acts by musicians and DJs or general dining and function activities.

Additional infrastructure services were provided to support the development including grease traps installed in the basement level below, cool room refrigeration systems, dedicated electrical distribution board and submains to the main switchboard.

Detection and sprinkler services were provided to alternative solutions in accordance with the fire engineering solution.
