Keen builder seeks tender prices, marking Queens Wharf milestone

27 July 2018

Queensland Government: Acting Tourism Industry Development Minister Shannon Fentiman said tender pricing for opportunities on the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane are being sought from today.

“Tender-pricing ads in today’s Courier are another great marker in this exciting transformational project,” she said.

“As part of a competitive process, one of the bidding contractors (Probuild) has today (Saturday) started advertising to test pricing in preparation for submitting its QWB construction tender.”

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will offer 1100-plus hotel rooms, 50 new restaurants, cafes and bars, a pedestrian bridge to South Bank, apartments and thousands of car parks.

“Today’s call relates to building of the Rosewood and Dorsett hotels and a double-tower Star-hotel beneath the iconic Sky Deck.”

Destination Brisbane Consortium advises that the refurbishment of Treasury Brisbane to become The Ritz-Carlton Brisbane and high-end retail will be in a later tender, with those works occurring after QWB’s core development 2022 opening.

Ms Fentiman welcomed today’s tender-pricing activities with trade packages varying from metal, glazing, concrete and electrical to joinery, security and plumbing.

“Every day we’re getting closer and closer to 2022 and a new world-class resort employing up to 8000 people. In the meantime more than 2000 jobs will be on offer to build it.”

“Today’s advertisement - and there will be plenty more soon – are a great vote of confidence in our catalytic project.

“DBC are saying that at the appropriate time subcontractors will be able to register interest through the Industry Capability Network gateway, which can be accessed via the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane website.”
