First contracts for North Queensland Stadium on schedule to be awarded by end of 2016
November 17, 2016

The first three contracts for the $250 million North Queensland Stadium in Townsville – including principal consultant – are on schedule to be awarded before the end of this year.

Speaking in Townsville this week, Queensland Minister for State Development, Dr Anthony Lynham, said the next milestone was a call for tenders for two contracts for the quantity survey and audit programmer.

Dr Lynham confirmed that tenders will be called from Friday 18th November 2016 from suppliers shortlisted last month - eight of them from North Queensland or with NQ offices.

The shortlisted suppliers will submit tenders by Friday 9th December and be awarded before Christmas.

Minister Assisting the Premier on North Queensland and Member for Mundingburra, Coralee O’Rourke, welcomed the next big milestone in the stadium project, which means hundreds of jobs are one step closer.

Minister O’Rourke stated “this is exciting news for Townsville in the lead up to Christmas and will provide a much needed shot in the arm for local economic confidence.”

The eight local shortlisted companies are:

• AECOM Cost Consulting (Brisbane and Townsville offices)
• Donald Cant Watts Corke Qld (Brisbane and Townsville offices)
• Gleeds in collaboration with local Townsville firm D. Neilsen & Associates (Brisbane)
• Rider Levett Bucknell Qld (RLB) (Brisbane and Townsville offices)
• WT Partnership (Brisbane and Townsville offices).
• Ranbury Management Group (Mackay and Brisbane offices)
• Resource Co-ordination Partnership (Brisbane and Townsville offices)
• Tracey Brunstrom & Hammond (Brisbane and Townsville offices)

Two Brisbane-based companies are also in the running Aquenta Consulting and Rowles Time Management.

Tenders for the principal consultant contract close on 30th November, with a consultant to be appointed before Christmas.

Dr Lynham added “everything is on time and on schedule to deliver a world-class stadium for the start of the 2020 NRL season.”
