Another local signs on to Parklands project

FOLLOWING a number of large-scale tenders awarded to Chinchilla locals, the Chinchilla Botanic Parklands project has welcomed another local business on board.

Chinchilla company Goodland Field Services has begun civil works on the Parklands site this week after being awarded the tender for more than $300,000. Goodland will also perform additional unit rate work on site.

Goodland Field Services general manager Piet Rycks said he and his crew were excited to be working on the project.

"We applied to work on the Parklands project as we could see the benefit in not only creating something for the community but also as an opportunity to showcase our capabilities as a local business,” he said.

"We're involved in preparing the site, protecting the remnant vegetation, shaping the water course and constructing the platform for the landscapers. We are also responsible for the installation of pipeline to feed water into the site.”

Councillor Carolyn Tillman said she was pleased at the amount of work awarded to local businesses.

"The contract with Goodland brings our local business spend to over $1.67million,” she said.
