Sunshine Coast construction firm McNab has been awarded the multi-million dollar build contract for the Laguna North Lakes mixed-use precinct. Due to commence work in 2020, the builder was appointed the contract by developers Pointcorp and the George Group, with the build expected to span two-and-a-half years.
Designed by renowned Brisbane architects Richards and Spence, in collaboration with acclaimed firm Nettleton Tribe, Laguna will invigorate Queensland’s fastest growing area. Located 25 kilometres from Brisbane, on North Lakes Drive, the project will include 1.7 hectares of community space – a lagoon-style pool, high street shopping and dining scene, function, gym and wellness spaces, TRYP hotel by Wyndham and two-levels of basement carparking.
George Group Director, Patrick George explained that appointing a reliable contractor with proven outputs is key to the success of the development.
“A project with intrinsic elements of this scale requires a reliable contractor, renowned for quality outputs. McNab’s proven ability to safely and efficiently deliver high-end developments ultimately settled the agreement,” said George Group Director, Patrick George.
Sunshine Coast Construction Manager of McNab, Carl Nancarrow, welcomed the opportunity to construct the development and said it will provide a major boost to local subcontractors.
“We are delighted that the developers are confident in our ability to bring their vision to life and deliver a great outcome for locals and visitors alike. This is a large-scale project requiring a significant amount of tradespeople which provides a consistent workflow for our valued subcontractors and suppliers so it’s a great outcome for the local construction industry,” said Mr Nancarrow.
The development will provide economic growth across the region with up to 300 workers onsite during peak building times. The ground-breaking project will commence mid-next year, with the build expected to complete in 2022.
