Stage 2 construction is underpinned by a
commitment to supporting the Gold Coast.
This is a local job built by local workers and
contractors. The team had spent 90 per cent
of project procurement ($95 million) locally
as at March 2017, and employed 90 per cent
of their workforce from the Gold Coast and
South East Queensland.
Local engagement has ensured high levels of
community and stakeholder satisfaction with
CPB Contractors' delivery of the Gold Coast
Light Rail Stage 2 project.
Innovating in Gympie
Located in the environmentally sensitive Mary
Valley Catchment, the $384-million Bruce
Highway Upgrade -- Cooroy to Curra Section
C (Traveston to Woondum) project has strict
environmental requirements, and compliance is
a key performance area.
Servicing the client, the Department of Transport
and Main Roads (DTMR), with a reliable, proven
team has been a signi cant factor to successfully
align drivers -- which include focusing squarely
on environmental management.
Initiatives to support proactive and constant
engagement have included co-locating three
teams at one site to facilitate daily discussion
and interaction, foundation workshops to align
drivers, weekly progress meetings, relationship
management scoring, and strong compliance
with Contractor Performance Reporting.
By effectively discussing and agreeing to scope
changes and working together, the company has
developed innovations that have supported DTMR.
Client collaboration has added signi cant value
for the Department of Transport and Main Roads
on the Bruce Highway Upgrade -- Cooroy to
Curra -- Section C project.
Continued collaboration in Central
While road and rail infrastructure forms a core
part of CPB Contractors' Queensland business,
structural steel, mechanical and piping (SMP) is
integral to its integrated business model. The
company's SMP experts have continued to secure
ongoing work with resource clients including
Origin Energy and Queensland Gas Company
(QGC) in Central Queensland.
CPB Contractors has been delivering gas-
gathering and -processing infrastructure in the
Surat Basin since 2010, creating signi cant local
employment and business opportunity through
long-term partnerships with clients.
With social performance of gas companies under
keen local scrutiny, CPB Contractors has played
its part by contributing to regional employment,
business spend and community bene t.
For example, on the QCLNG Upstream Works
for QGC, CPB Contractors awarded 25 per cent
of contracts and purchase orders during the life
of the contract in the local government area.
The remainder comprised 55 per cent spent in
Queensland and 25 per cent interstate, with less
than one per cent of all project contracts and
purchase orders going overseas.
This focus on spending locally, coupled with
delivery performance, led to the awarding of
further work, including the current $250-million
QCLNG Surat North project to deliver structural
steelwork, mechanical, piping, electrical and
instrumentation (SMPE&I) works and civil works.
To date, the project has employed 67 per cent
of its workforce from Queensland, with 17 per
cent from local towns. It has sourced 31 per cent
of its total procurement locally, and has invested
in social initiatives to support the reinvigoration
of towns such as Wandoan by attracting visitors
and potential residents.
Similarly, on gas gathering and water treatment
facility works for Origin Energy, the team engaged
and employed locally, which in turn built stronger
community connections and a more committed,
longer-term workforce. The team employed 29
per cent of wages personnel and 15 per cent of
staff personnel from the local community and
wider Darling Downs region, with 6.7 per cent
of the workforce being Indigenous Australians.
CPB Contractors has again been awarded
additional work from this long-term client,
based on the success of its delivery and local
engagement. Origin awarded the $400-million
APLNG Collaborative Well Delivery project to CPB
Contractors in 2016, and after just 12 months
on the project, a team of 1020 gas-gathering
