Big turnout for first hospital information session
  • Tuesday 14 August 2012

More than 200 people have attended council’s first Coast University Hospital tendering information session at the Big Pineapple.

Mayor Mark Jamieson said council is keen to have as many of the Coast’s trades businesses as possible get work on the project.

“We want locals to have the opportunity to compete for the work which will flow from this huge project,” Mayor Mark Jamieson said.

“Obviously there are no guarantees, but we want to encourage all businesses and individuals to find out how they can get involved.

“This project will generate more than a million dollars a day for our economy, and we want locals to share in that investment.

“The construction of the hospital is a critically important part of our goal to make this region economically sustainable.”

There are still three more workshops to be held:

  • Tuesday 14 August - Lake Kawana Community Centre
  • Thursday 16 August - Beerwah Community Centre
  • Monday, 20 August - Australis Noosa Lakes Resort, Tewantin

There will also be representatives from Lend Lease and Stockland at these sessions to provide an overview of the University Hospital project and key timelines.
