Who is involved

North Queensland Stadium is a joint project of the Queensland Government, Australian Government and Townsville City Council and is supported by both the National Rugby League and the North Queensland Cowboys. The stadium forms part of the Townsville City Deal signed in December 2016.

Project delivery team

The Department of Housing and Public Works (HPW) is leading the project with an experienced team of contractors and consultants including:

  • Managing contractor: Watpac

  • Principal consultant: Cox Architecture

Local industry involvement

Working with local industry and supporting local jobs are priorities for the North Queensland Stadium project.

We maximised opportunities for local companies to tender by:

  • implementing Watpac’s local industry engagement plan, including meeting with local businesses to assess their capability and capacity and then adjusting how works were packaged

  • applying the Queensland Procurement Policy 2018

  • contracting the local content services of the Industry Capability Network (ICN), a not-for-profit organisation that helps to engage local businesses during the procurement process

Watpac is targeting 80% of hours spent building the stadium to be by locals and 80% of the value of the project to be spent on local subcontractors and suppliers.

Watpac is also targeting 6.6% of the construction workforce be Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people.
