Water park mosaic install

  • Elizabeth Quay

The BHP Billiton Water Park mosaic is the final piece of the $4million Elizabeth Quay art program to be installed.

The mosaic is a collaboration between artists Sandra Hill and Jenny Dawson and is inspired by the the Dreaming story of the creation of the Milky Way.

Works to remove the existing temporary finish and install the mosaic tiles will commence in the last week of March and are due to be complete in mid-2016. The works will include waterproofing the base of the artwork, laying of the tiles in an intricate pattern on the floor of the water feature and grouting and curing of the tiles.

A works program is also currently under development for upgrades to the BHP Billiton Water Park's filtration system. These works will run concurrently with the mosaic install program.
