AE Smith is contracted by Watpac Group to provide effective delivery and management of all air-conditioning, mechanical and electrical services for Stage 2 of the construction of the North Queensland Stadium in Townsville. The $250 million project will employ more than 2,000 people across the design and construction phases, with a focus on providing local supplier and Indigenous employment opportunities.
“Our local team is looking forward to working on this flagship project,” said Mark Lovelady, General Manager, Queensland.
The new sporting stadium will feature 25,000 seats, corporate facilities and permanent stands and concessions, as well as modern amenities built by the local people of Townsville. Construction of the stadium will be completed in time for the 2020 National Rugby League season.
