The year was 1986, Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen was enjoying the final years of his reign as the longest-serving premier of Queensland, Parrammatta Eels are to be become NRL premiers, top of the song charts where Billy Oceans – When the Going Gets Tough the Tough get Going and Samantha Fox – Touch Me, I want Your Body (1986 not a great musical year) and in Brisbane The Myer Centre started construction.
It was noted at the time that the construction of the complex was the largest urban excavation in Australia. Soil Surveys was involved in various stages of the development as documented in the photos below.
33 years on and the Myer Centre is still one of the most popular shopping destinations in SE QLD. Soil Surveys would be proud to be part of your development now and in 33 years time.
