Watpac was appointed to provide Stage 1 Managing Contractor services for Townsville’s new 25,000 seat North Queensland Stadium in May 2017.
The project will be delivered over two stages and is expected to engage with more than 2,000 people across the design and construction phases. Stage 1's design and early works programme has now commenced, with Stage 2 scheduled to commence in early 2018.
Through delivering this iconic sporting stadium for the North Queensland community, Watpac will provide vital job and training opportunities for the Townsville region including, indigenous employment opportunities, local business participation and upskilling wherever possible.
The new North Queensland Stadium, located in Townsville CBD is a joint project of the Queensland Government, Australian Government, Townsville City Council and is supported by the National Rugby League and the North Queensland Cowboys.
The project will be completed in time for the 2020 NRL season.
