The Palaszczuk Government has called on eligible Queensland companies to tender for government office fit out works for a new Child Safety Service Centre in Morayfield.

Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan encouraged local businesses to put their hand up to be part of the work, which would involve fitting out an existing building.

“I want to make sure that our local businesses have every chance to be part of government led construction and maintenance works,” Mr Ryan said.

“The project will include fitting out an existing building in Morayfield to provide work areas and meeting rooms, and family friendly spaces for interactions with Child Safety.

“Works will involve installing office partitions and workstations, constructing meeting rooms and laying new flooring.”

Minister for Housing and Public Works Mick de Brenni said the project was another example of the Palaszczuk Government delivering on its commitments to jobs and frontline services.

“This project involves significant refurbishment works, and will support jobs for workers in a range of trades,” Mr de Brenni said.

"This is great for our local tradies and their families. I strongly encourage every eligible local business to get a tender in for this opportunity.”
