The Pier Shangri-La and Lake St Projects

Greetings from Cairns!

It being the middle of Winter, we have to say we’re quite envious of the folks in the DESIGNA SABAR Office and Support Team in the sunny climate of Cairns. But these guys aren’t taking it easy; they’re providing speedy on-site service to our valued Far North Queensland clients (some of which include the Cairns Airport, Hospital, Central Shopping Centre, and the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino).

And our Customer base in Far North Queensland continues to grow—we are pleased to announce that in June we completed two new Cairns-based projects for The Pier and Lake St!

Both sites had old and outdated equipment, so the DESIGNA SABAR Team stepped in to help out. Now The Pier Cairns and Lake St have been fitted with our new state-of-the-art Car Park equipment. We’ve blended convenience with contemporary design in our revolutionary interface, so that people who use our pay stations find the process streamlined and intuitive—basically a breeze to use!

We’ve also set the standard for energy efficiency with our innovative BlueEdition technology and our tried and tested ABACUS operating system. In a world of limited resources, efficiency is DESIGNA SABAR’s priority. Our machinery intelligently manages energy use and we can prove it; our entrance/exit terminals have the lowest power consumption in their class.

If you want to experience our equipment for yourself, you can check out our installations on-site at The Pier Cairns or Lake St! See below for a bit more about each of these two projects.

Upgrading at The Pier/Shangri-La Project
The Pier/Shangri-La Project

The Pier is the place to be in Cairns. Not only is it an impressive shopping centre that has you covered for all your fashion needs, it also boasts an art gallery that exclusively exhibits local talent and an entire boardwalk of award winning restaurants. Situated right on the waterfront with a stunning view of the marina (and right next to the Shangri-La Hotel), The Pier Cairns acts as a hub for tourists wanting to take boat tours out to the iconic Great Barrier Reef. For the land-dwellers, The Pier hosts a variety of fun events for kids and adults alike.

The Pier Cairns is certainly worth a visit, and whether your plans are on land or sea, with our newly installed parking system you can spend all day enjoying what this unique centre has to offer!

Updating Equipment Lake St Project
Lake St Project

The Lake St project was a fantastic win for DESIGNA SABAR. The Cairns Regional Council has given our Team management of the site and our Cairns office is looking after the Car Park for them.
Lake Street is at the heart of the Cairns CBD, where parking is at a premium. It is therefore a significant piece of infrastructure providing off-street parking to workers as well shoppers.

Graham Boyd is the Manager Regulatory Services,and his perspective was; “This has been a very positive process, DESIGNA SABAR have provided excellent advice and service from the project scope right through to implementation and takeover.

I would also like to add that the level of service provided at the initial installation was excellent and during the install the car park remained fully operational with no disruption to car park users.”

So we want to say congratulations to our DESIGNA SABAR Cairns Team! They take good care of our diverse northern Queensland client base, and we’re excited to see what they accomplish next!
