More than 50 jobs are on offer for local subcontractors and their teams as the next stages of construction begin at the Bundaberg Aquatic Centre.
Woollam Constructions is leading the build and has put the call out for contractors from a range of trades including ceilings and linings, carpentry, metalwork, paining, roofing, tiling, flooring, and landscaping to express their interest in subcontract packages.
It comes after 8000 cubic metres of earth was cut to make way for three pools at the site along Walker Street.
Woollam General Manager Chris Lucas said the company and Bundaberg Regional Council were keen to see local tradespeople involved so that jobs and investment stayed in the area.
“We're looking for experienced, reliable tradespeople who are passionate about their work and committed to delivering high-quality results,” Mr Lucas said.
“If you're interested in working on this exciting project, we encourage you to get in touch with us.
“Woollam is a name that has been around for 138 years, and we build for generations to come – to be part of this project is to be part of something that our grandchildren’s grandchildren can enjoy and say “my family built that’.”
To express interest in working on the project, local trades can contact Asia Merciar at Woollam on 1300-Woollam (1300 966 552) or email@example.com
Woollam is Australia’s oldest construction company.
From Thomas Woollam’s backyard joinery business in suburban Clayfield in 1884, Woollam has expanded to be one of the leading building and design companies in Queensland with more than 200 staff in Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Ballina.
The company is linked to some of the state’s most iconic buildings – both new and old – including the Stockman’s Hall of Fame, Breakfast Creek Hotel, Rockhampton Museum of Art and Hummingbird House.
I think it is great that the BRC employed a known Qld firm for the construction work on the aquatic centre.
