Brisbane Ferry Terminals Wins 2017 Good Design Award

Brisbane’s new generation ferry terminals grew from the imaginations of a team passionate to find a better way to make critical transport infrastructure more flood resilient and allow travellers to better celebrate the river. The result: natural disaster resilience that allows operations to return shortly after flooding.

Undoubtedly, a well-deserved award for a fantastic design and follows winning numerous other design and engineering awards including the Sir William-Hudson Award, the highest accolade for a project-based award from Engineers Australia.

Digilin are extremely proud to be involved in this project, after selection by Aurecon to supply the fibre optic lighting systems to illuminate the large feature signage elements of the major terminals. It was a genuine pleasure for Digilin to work with such a gifted design team, and the results of these efforts speak for themselves.

The fibre optic systems supplied by Digilin were incorporated into the flood resilient design, comprising a series of side lit fibre optic cables in parallel runs to formulate an internal illumination system. The system requires zero maintenance to the illumination zone which was a particular requirement due to limited access post construction.

The opportunity to work with such highly esteemed and capable companies is very much appreciated.
