22 August 2017

Lendlease: Leading Australian Property and Infrastructure company Lendlease has today been appointed an Overlay Delivery Partner and Official Supporter Property & Infrastructure of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

Bringing global experience to the Gold Coast, the Australian company will project manage the delivery of 15 competition venues to Games standard across South East Queensland, Townsville and Cairns. Lendlease will also be delivering the overlay to the Athlete’s Village.

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) Chairman, Peter Beattie AC said he was pleased to welcome another Aussie business to the Games Family.

“We are very excited to welcome Lendlease as the latest supporter and valued member of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games,” Mr Beattie said.

“Lendlease brings to the table experience in delivering projects for major sporting events including the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, London 2012 Olympics, Sydney 2000 Olympics and a whole host of World Cup events.

“Most importantly, we have the support of a business, who understands the end user, helping us to build an even bigger and better Games for all to enjoy.

“Lendlease’s appointment is another step forward in our Games delivery program and I look forward to seeing the venue overlay across Games venues commence later in the year,”

Minister for the Commonwealth Games, Kate Jones, welcomed Lendlease to the GC2018 Games Sponsor Family.

“Lendlease brings its own Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan to the Games, which complements all that we are doing to promote the spirit of reconciliation through the Games.

“It’s the first time that a major international sporting event of this scale has committed to a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

“Through the RAP, we have an opportunity for Games partners to deliver real and tangible legacy outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, such as employment and training opportunities, and a greater cultural awareness of our unique heritage,” Minister Jones said.
