Obstacle

Stakeholder management was a major focus for this project. Hosting stakeholder consultations with multiple health groups and various end-users proved to be a challenge, as many influencers need their voices to be heard. Additionally, delivering a quality product within the defined budget set per grant funding required strong attention to detail and communication with each stakeholder. The site itself presented many physical restraints, which 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 development approval to move forward with construction works, which took place over one year whilst maintaining coordination between 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 was taken. Moving forward until the end of the project, LEAD continued to work as Project Managers and additionally as Superintendent to oversee the contract between EDQ and the contractor.
