Regional opportunities

Engaging local industry and generating jobs are two of the key objectives for the project.

These objectives are being addressed during the design and construction stage by:

  • Applying the Queensland Charter for Local Content to the project
  • Engaging the Industry Capability Network’s (ICN) local content services
  • Implementing managing contractor Watpac’s plan that targets at least 80 per cent of hours spent building the Stadium to be by locals and at least 80 per cent of the value of the project to be spent on local subcontractors and suppliers.
