A TEAM of abseiling painters are helping transform Jupiters Hotel & Casino.
The daring painters have already begun to transform the exterior of the Gold Coast landmark, with 12,000 litres of “Grand Piano Quarter” white paint set to be applied over the current sepia colour.
The abseiling team will work on the tiered, ocean side of the building, attached to the roof floor with anchor points.

For the hinterland side of the building, a Swing Stage – a long enclosed platform that hangs from cables attached to a system on the roof top – will be used.
It the first time the building has been painted since its construction.
Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg said Jupiters is a landmark building on the Gold Coast and its look was integral to the city’s skyline.
“Jupiters’ unique design is a real stand-out on the Gold Coast skyline – you can instantly recognise it when flying in and out of Gold Coast airport. We chose a fresh, modern look to ensure Jupiters continues to play an integral role in making this beautiful city a must-see destination.”
Family run and owned Gold Coast company Usher & Son won the contract to give Jupiters its brand new look.
“We are extremely proud to be part of Jupiters’ transformation and excited about its future and what it will do for the Gold Coast. Going to work every day with this magnificent view over the city and beaches, we think we have the best job in Australia,” said Usher and Son Project Manager, Mick Ward.
Geoff Hogg said the redevelopment is being handled carefully to ensure a world-class project is delivered, while causing as little disruption to guests as possible.
“Echo Entertainment Group is committed to creating a world-class integrated resort, which will boost tourism and one which locals will be proud of,” said Geoff.
When complete, the $345 million planned investment will include a new six-star luxury hotel tower featuring private balcony infinity pools, contemporary restaurants and bars, and the complete transformation of all existing facilities.
