Gowdie Management Group provided project management and superintendent services during construction and closeout of improvements to QUT’s O Block Podium, a popular pedestrian thoroughfare through a busy student precinct at the university’s Gardens Point campus.

Sections of the existing podium’s roof were raised to create semi-private small group spaces, which provided calm, peaceful areas for students to take time out en route to other locations on campus.

We played a crucial role during construction, managing the execution of each design element and ensuring pedestrian safety was maintained in this high traffic public area.

Our ability to facilitate effective communication between all stakeholders resulted in the successful transformation of O Block Podium, which was completed on time and within budget.
