Q1 Tower, Gold Coast

At 80 storeys, Q1 is the world’s tallest residential tower and offers a striking skyline on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Q1 was developed by The Sunland Group and built by Sunland Constructions. The building is supported by 26 piles, each two metres in diameter, that extend 40 metres into the ground passing through up to four metres of solid rock. Q1 contains one, two and three bedroom apartments.[1] Building facilities include two lagoon swimming pools, a lap pool, gymnasium, small theatre, a ballroom and a spa centre.

SkyPoint observation deck at levels 77 and 78 is Australia’s only beachside observation deck, and has room enough for 400 people. It towers 230 metres above the Surfers Paradise beach, giving viewers a 360 degree view of Brisbane to the North, The Gold Coast Hinterland to the west, Byron Bay to the South and the Pacific Ocean to the east.

Electrostatic was appointed to undertake protection of steel components in the roof system of the Q1 tower. The harsh, exposed position, and difficult access meant paint quality had to be of the highest order. EZigal was the ideal choice, offering aesthetic appeal and year round protection.
