CQU has been a long term client of Paynter Dixon’s, spanning over 10 years. The relationship has been built on constant communication with all parties and ensuring that the project is delivered on time and on budget. The project team had extensive knowledge of the Education and University sector, with the niche team having delivered over 30 education projects together, allowing them a greater understanding of potential challenges and hurdles that may occur. The main objectives of the CQU project included the provision of spaces that allows for the effective integration of Higher Education and Vocational Education Training (VET) programs to be delivered at the Mackay City Campus. This also meant maintaining operations at the Campus for all faculties and divisions including business and teaching during the construction period. The refurbishment permitted PDQ to modernise the existing learning facilities, including a library and classrooms and provided scope to address future development, and enhance the Campus as a whole.
