AECOM to oversee Townsville water pipeline contracts
AECOM will provide contract administration and on-site supervision for work such as the installation of the pipeline, which is expected to start later this year.
Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill said breaking up the work packages on the pipeline project allowed local firms the best chance of securing work to create as many local jobs as possible.
“There are several different companies already working on the project and it shows what Townsville businesses can do when they are given the chance to work together,” Cr Hill said.
“Council has deliberately chosen to break up the work packages to give local businesses every opportunity to be part of the project and that’s why we have selected AECOM to do contract management and coordination. “We want to create as many jobs for locals as possible on the new water pipeline project.”
