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 one’s design and early works programme has now commenced, with stage two scheduled to commence in 2018.
Through delivering this iconic sporting stadium for the North Queensland community, Watpac will provide vital job and training opportunities for the Townsville region, with a priority to provide indigenous employment opportunities, local business participation and upskilling wherever possible.
Watpac will draw on its expertise and local
relationships, engaging with local trades and suppliers over the course of the stadium’s
construction. Working with interested parties early on, Watpac will create a
pathway for local industry participation.
