Watpac Finalises Stage 2 Contract for North Qld Stadium

Watpac Limited announced the finalisation of the managing contractor services requirements for the Stage 2 delivery of the new North Queensland Stadium in Townsville.

The national construction and civil and mining group has been working with the Queensland Government in recent months to finalise the design and contract value for the $250 million project.

With Watpac officially announced as managing contractor in May 2017, the Group commenced Stage 1 activities on site in August 2017, undertaking early preparation and civil works for the new best-practice facility in Townsville’s CBD area.

The new iconic sporting stadium, which will be home to the North Queensland Cowboys, will feature 25,000 seats, corporate facilities, permanent stand and concessions and modern amenities that will be built by the local people of Townsville.

Watpac Construction Northern Region Manager, Bryan Glancy, said the Group is pleased to have finalised the contract for Stage 2 of the North Queensland Stadium delivery programme.

“Watpac is delighted to be building on its sporting facilities portfolio having delivered some iconic stadiums including Suncorp Stadium, the Gabba, Skilled Park and the showpiece venue of the recent 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Carrara Stadium,” Mr Glancy said.

With the project expected to employ more than 2,000 people across the design and construction phases, Mr Glancy said Watpac is pleased to be working with the State Government in providing local supplier and indigenous employment opportunities.

“The Group is committed to local content and indigenous employment opportunities and to date 95.7 per cent of total hours worked on site has been undertaken by local subcontractors, with 22.6 per cent of the current workforce on site identifying as indigenous.”
