The Green Tower, Showground Hill

A significant milestone on the $2.9 billion transformation of the RNA Showgrounds site has been reached with Lend Lease’s commencement of construction on The Green Tower at Showground Hill, Brisbane. The Green Tower is Lend Lease’s third inner city apartment building in the 15 year redevelopment plan which will transform the site into a new mixed-use precinct where thousands will live, work and explore.


The scaffolding supplier of choice for this project is Uni-span. More than 640 tonnes of scaffolding, covering 11000 sqm will be supplied throughout the duration of this 12 month contract. A team of 8 scaffolders have begun erecting this Quickstage scaffold system, which is hot dip galvanised (HDG). This benefits the Quickstage system in the following ways:

  • Versatile & economic way of protecting steel for long periods (25+ years), providing long life and lowest lifetime cost
  • Reliable – as galvanising is carried out to AS/NZS 4680
  • Greater resistance to damage than other coatings – bonds metallurgically with the steel
  • Complete coverage – all surfaces (inside & out) including corners and narrow gaps
  • Ease of inspection – HDG is an honest coating, it’s continuous and sound and can be checked easily
  • Complete protection – the coating offers itself to any small areas exposed through cutting or accidental damage



Uni-span offers our client contractual peace of mind when it comes to scaffolding. To find out more about this project and how Uni-span can assist with your upcoming scaffolding requirements, contact our Scaffolding Sales Representative:
