Mayor Mark Jamieson has congratulated Sunshine Coast company Whale Resource & Recovery in securing a contract with Lend Lease for the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) site.
â€œThis is the second major contract to be announced for a local company at the SCUH site, following Shadforthâ€™s major win, and we expect more local businesses to be successful in their tendering as time goes on,â€ he said.
â€œWhale Resource & Recovery will supply a number of bins for removing industrial waste for recycling during construction of the hospital.
â€œRecycling the industrial waste, rather than dumping it at landfill sites means a reduction in the hospitalâ€™s carbon footprint.
â€œThe company registered through the ICN Gateway and attended all the workshops offered by Sunshine Coast Council which assisted their application.
â€œUltimately, it took five months to win the contract, so getting there can be a lengthy process, but I advise those businesses which have already registered with ICN, and those which still intend to, that patience has its rewards.â€
Work packages at SCUH can be accessed via the ICN link. Closing dates for the majority of packages is August 31. Registering at ICN also qualifies businesses to tender for contracts on other sites including State Government sites.
