Vaughan Constructions has opened a new office in Brisbane as the national builder and developer responds to a thriving industrial market and an increasing level of business enquiry across South-East Queensland.
According to Managing Director, Andrew Noble, the establishment of the new 60a Gloucester St, Spring Hill, office will facilitate the company’s growing project pipeline potential across the state.
He said the increase in enquiry had followed the firm’s work on the Sheraton Mirage at Port Douglas and the announcement of an agreement to build a $40 million warehouse for McPhee Distribution Services at Berrinba.
''The Brisbane office has always been an important part of our business plan. Our confidence is bolstered by the success of the Sheraton project, our appointment to the McPhee distribution facility, and the relationships with consultants, subcontractors and suppliers that we currently enjoy in addition to our loyal local team.
''We are also very mindful that Queensland, and South-East Queensland in particular, will benefit from significant infrastructure investment, including massive road and rail projects, which has and will continue to attract industrial and other users and Vaughan is looking to be a part of that activity,’’ Mr Noble said.
The McPhee 15,000m² warehouse is due for completion in June this year. It is estimated that 400 construction-related contractor jobs will be required during construction with around 50 jobs required once operational.
