内城中历史悠久的RNA展览场地作为国家最大的城市更新项目的一部分，目前正在重新开发。重建项目在保留和突显大量现有历史建筑和场地的同时，还整合了一系列新增功能，如零售、商业、多户住房、多用途会议空间、展览建筑和停车设施。新建大型动物展示馆的设计不仅满足每年牛类和其他大型动物的展览需求（能够容纳多达1800头牛），同时也能供每年举行的其他大型展览使用，停车场可以满足集会和展览参与者以及附近皇家布里斯班医院（Royal Brisbane Hospital）的使用需求。
The historic RNA showgrounds in the inner city are currently being redeveloped in of the country’s largest Urban Renewal programmes. The redevelopment will retain and enhance a significant stock of existing heritage buildings and places, whilst integrating a range of new retail, commercial, multi-residential, new multi-purpose convention, exhibition, and car-parking facilities. The new Large Animal Pavilion is designed not only to accommodate the annual Cattle and other large animals’ exhibition (housing up to 1800 head of cattle), but also to provide for other major exhibitions each calendar year, and further car-parking to meet the demands of the Convention and Exhibition attendees and the nearby Royal Brisbane Hospital.

The multiple modes of operation demanded a unique design with no recognisable international precedents. We developed a strong working relationship with the client and key stakeholders, undertook significant research, attended the annual show and observed and recorded the facility demands and complex logistics, including the peak periods of loading and unloading of cattle to ensure a robust and flexible facility that could easily and readily adapt to both the known and unknown variations in the buildings operations.
