Q1 Surfers Paradise

Did you know the Gold Coast is home to the tallest residential tower in Australia?

Completed in 2005, the iconic and majestic Q1 Tower has 78 floors and stands an impressive 322.5 metres tall. Designed by SDG and the Buchan Group and built by Sunland Constructions, the Q1 Tower is also the tallest building in the Oceania region at this time.

According to the architects, the angular top and tall spire was inspired by the Sydney 2000 Olympic games, to mirror the Olympic torch and Sydney Opera House.

The Q1 Tower held the title as the world’s tallest residential building …. until being overtaken by the 337 metre The Marina Torch building in Dubai in 2011.

MDA Consulting Engineers has been engaged to undertake a range of building services consulting projects at the Q1 since completion.
