Safe Direction supplied RHINO-STOP® guardrail for the $18 million redevelopment of the Brisbane Road Car Park in Mooloolaba. The new eight-storey multi-deck car park increases public parking in Mooloolaba from 176 spaces to over 700 car parking spaces, with a further 54 motorcycle spaces and 50 bicycle spaces.
The design of the new multi-deck car park draws inspiration from the natural environment and incorporates local references of the Mooloolaba area. The play of light and shadow on the building as well as subtle colour changes echo the flow and movement of water in the nearby rivers and ocean. Vertical elements in the surrounding screen hint at mooring posts for boats. Water references form a key element of the overall design connecting the built structure to Mooloolaba’s sense of place and coastal character.
