Joining the team delivering the North Queensland Stadium project this week, Mendi Construction bring not only their civil earthworks and roadworks expertise but also vivid memories of the construction of 1300SMILES Stadium.
Now Mendi Director, Jeff Doyle, says he and his team are proud to be working on such an iconic project in Townsville, a community the company has been operating in for nearly 60 years.
“Two generations of my family and now a total of 5 members of our current Mendi team who worked on 1300SMILES will have the opportunity to work on a second major Stadium in our home town” said Mr Doyle.
“My father, Kevin Doyle, was heavily involved in the construction of 1300SMILES Stadium where a great deal of the machinery and labour required to complete the job were donated.”
The Mendi group’s passion for rugby league has also seen the company become a major partner of the Townsville and District Mendi Blackhawks, a Townsville-based club in the Queensland-wide Instruct Super Cup competition.
“At Mendi we believe in supporting locals, whether it be through employing locals, buying local or community giving, and the North Queensland Stadium project with its focus on regional employment and investment is a perfect fit for us” said Mr Doyle.
Mendi Constructions employs over 70 in their proudly Australian owned and operated business.
Mendi Constructions commenced work on the Saunders Street site on Monday 21 August, following the announcement of the award of the civil earthworks and roadworks trade package at the project’s sod turn event on Friday 18 August 2017.
