Obstacle

Stakeholder management is a major focus for this project. Hosting stakeholder consultations with multiple health groups and various end users has proven to be a challenge, as there are many influencers that need their voices to be heard. Additionally, delivering a quality product within the defined budget that was set per grant funding will require strong attention to detail and communication with each stakeholder. The site itself presented many physical restraints which has led to a novel way of building pavilion type hubs whilst avoiding typical demountable buildings of the past.

Our Approach

LEAD Consultants helped Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) submit and receive a development approval to move forward with construction works. This process took place over the course of one year and involved coordination among EDQ, Town Planner, Consultants and high-level stakeholders. Towards the end of this process, procurement activities began to identify a suitable contractor to undertake a design and construct contract. The contractor was identified, and value management workshops were completed to ensure the most cost-effective approach is taken for this project. Moving forward until the end of the project, LEAD will continue to work as project managers and additionally as superintendent to oversee the contract between EDQ and the contractor.
