Building Queensland involved in more than double the proposals

12 October 2017

Queensland Government: Building Queensland has been involved in the development of approximately 50 proposals—more than double that of the previous financial year, its 2016–17 Annual Report shows.

Acting Minister for Infrastructure Leeanne Enoch said the demand for Building Queensland’s advice and assistance was growing.

“Building Queensland continues to work closely with government agencies on business case development and we expect they will be able to report on many more in the next financial year,” Ms Enoch said.

“The report released today highlights Building Queensland’s important role in ensuring consistency in business case development and an informed approach to infrastructure delivery.

“Building Queensland had an integral part in the progression of many important infrastructure projects for our state.

“We look forward to working with Building Queensland going forward and delivering real infrastructure outcomes for Queensland.”

In the past 12 months, the state government has provided partial or full funding commitments to six proposals Building Queensland has recommended as priorities for the state:

Building Queensland’s involvement in business case development ranges from assisting agencies in business case development, including undertaking a reviewing role, to leading business case development for infrastructure proposals with a capital value of over $100 million.

Of these proposals, Building Queensland identified 26 as priorities for further development by the state across its December 2016 and June 2017 Infrastructure Pipeline Reports.
