STRAND DEVELOPMENT A BOOST TO NORTH QUEENSLAND WORKFORCE
12th February 2021
New Townsville development 70 The Strand is providing a boost to local jobs, with leading North Queensland contractor Peak ARE engaged by RCQ to deliver a complete mechanical and electrical services package on site.
Peak ARE Director Brad Swaffer praised RCQ’s commitment to supporting local businesses, saying 15 Peak ARE staff will be deployed throughout the duration of the contract.
“It’s incredibly humbling to work alongside a company like RCQ which has an ethos of developing and building with passion to ensure their projects leave a positive lasting legacy,” Mr Swaffer said.
“70 The Strand is an important and transformative development for Townsville, offering a seven-storey apartment complex, as well as a two-storey food and beverage outlet.
“The entire Peak ARE team is excited to be working on this project and be a part of the legacy it will create for The Strand area, the people and businesses of Townsville and the region’s tourism industry more broadly.”
Peak ARE is working closely with the RCQ design team to deliver a full turn-key mechanical and electrical solution that is tailored specifically to the 70 The Strand development.
“The Peak ARE team prides itself on offering an end-to-end service from design, to supply, install and maintenance. We have the unique expertise to offers customer solutions that others can’t,” Mr Swaffer said.
“It’s fantastic that RCQ has engaged with local, North Queensland contractors to deliver these works and ensure the flow on benefits stay here in our local region.
“Peak ARE is a local, family owned and operated business and it’s really special to be a part of something that we’ll be able to see and appreciate for years to come.
“RCQ has been operating in regional Queensland for over 30 years. It’s great to be working with them and we look forward to continuing our relationship long into the future.”
