Who we are

QBuild is a commercialised business unit of the Queensland Government.

We offer procurement management and contract management services associated with the construction, maintenance and operation of Queensland Government buildings and assets.

Our team has extensive experience in a range of professional building disciplines, trades and facilities management. We can help ensure that meeting your infrastructure or property requirements is a seamless process.

Our areas of expertise include architecture, building maintenance, building surveying, engineering, interior design, landscape architecture, program management, property services, quantity surveying, risk management and value management.

We have specialist knowledge in community and public housing, community safety, education, health, law and order, and sport and recreation.

Rebuilding QBuild program

On 25 August 2019, the Queensland Government announced plans to ‘rebuild QBuild’ by employing 300 trade-based field staff, including 60 apprentices, over the next 3 years.

The Rebuilding QBuild program will:

  • help deliver construction and maintenance services to regional and remote areas of the state
  • provide a pathway to education, training and jobs for young people
  • improve the government’s ability to respond to disaster events.

As part of this initiative, Building and Asset Services has changed its name to QBuild.

QBuild will continue the government’s reinvigorated capital works and major projects program.

If you have any questions, please email qbuildprojectteam@hpw.qld.gov.au.

What we do

We partner with government agencies to strategically manage their building, construction and maintenance activities to ensure their assets and facilities are safe and sustainable.

Our customers include departments and agencies that are responsible for schools, hospitals, housing, police stations, correctional facilities, ambulance stations and other facilities.

We manage their asset life-cycle through acquisition, construction, maintenance, and disposal.

We also work with industry and local suppliers to both maximise value for money for our customers and help build Queensland’s regions.

Procurement management

Our procurement management services are unique for all our government clients. They address the risk and probity issues associated with their building and property requirements.

Our services include

  • assisting with the project brief (perhaps the most crucial part of a project, so the project progresses smoothly and outcomes/objectives are achieved)
  • identifying, analysing and continually monitoring risks to effectively mitigate and manage them
  • managing the process to select and engage consultants
  • monitoring the performance of consultants and contractors
  • identifying, assessing and providing recommendations for the selection of procurement options, contractual options and tender methods
  • managing the tender process
  • performing the audit role throughout project delivery
  • administering contracts and performing the role of superintendent while using our expertise to meet client expectations
  • monitoring and reporting.

Contract management

QBuild provides contract management service that ensures your business interests are protected during every aspect of your building or property project.

We specialise in building contract law and administration, and lead the development and application of government capital works procurement policies.

Our services include:

  • contract claims
  • contract training
  • claims management
  • contract documentation.

We can also:

  • develop tender criteria,
  • draft conditions of tender
