Expanding in Australia - new Townsville office

Date: 18 April 2012

In order to enhance the services that Turner & Townsend provide to Australian clients, we are pleased to announce our new base of operation in Townsville, co-located in Stark Consulting’s Townsville office.

Townsville is located on the coast of Queensland, south of Cairns. It is a major local hub for the manufacturing and processing industries, and the only city in the world to refine three base metals - copper, zinc and nickel.

"The combination of our local experience, knowledge and understanding of local issues, together with the resources, experience and capability from Turner & Townsend’s national and global business will bring strong benefits to both organisations," says Ian Stark.

This relationship has been successful over recent years including the delivery of the Townsville Correctional Facility and currently on the JLU Lavarack Barracks project and Townsville Hospital Redevelopment. The later projects are examples of our local based staff having excellent local knowledge of current costs in the market combined with the necessary man power to keep ahead of the demanding project milestones.

Shaun Muddock, Associate Director says, "We have the skills and capability to provide a completely integrated service that can be tailored to meet the needs of our local clients and deal with the specific challenges of the construction, property, mining and energy industries in Townsville and surrounds."

Turner & Townsend currently provide cost planning and project management services (including the preparation of cost plans, bank reporting, GCS quantities and trade quantities, insurance valuations and tax depreciation schedules) to North Queensland clients.
