CCF QLD reminds members that who have registered expressions of interest in work packages associated with the $250 million North Queensland Stadium that they must get back online on the ICN Gateway to review and renew their EOIs.


Subcontractors and suppliers need to register again if they wish to be in the running for the 27 early works packages that have been released by managing contractor Watpac last Friday. 


“Every effort is being made to email and call the early birds to check the new, detailed packages Watpac has released.  Even if you have lodged EOIs for the early indicative work packages, it’s important to get back online on the ICN Gateway again,” said State Development Minister Dr Anthony Lynham.


Early works will deliver jobs in demolition, temporary fencing, temporary hydraulics, construction of temporary on-site amenities, civil works, mobile crane hire, cleaning services and licenced traffic control managers.  Dr Lynham said further trade packages would be released over the coming months with the total number of trade packages expected to reach approximately 80.


Information sessions will be held on June 13 and 14 to help contractors through the process of registering for work on the stadium and other local opportunities.

For more information on the free ICN Gateway sessions, contact the Department of State Development on 07 4758 3405.
