Wiley partners with Queensland councils

Brisbane-based engineering and construction company, Wiley, is using its extensive commercial and industrial expertise to help Queensland councils deliver key infrastructure projects.


“Modern-day councils have the enormous opportunity and responsibility of delivering small and large-scale infrastructure projects of all types to meet the ever-shifting needs of their communities,” said Michael Matthewson, Wiley Senior Process Engineer.

“Councils are multifaceted and hard-working organisations that are under increasing pressure to deliver more services and infrastructure while providing value for money to their constituents,” Mr Matthewson said.

“They have no option but to demand a transparent and competitive delivery of services and infrastructure and they deserve delivery partners who understand this,” he said.

Wiley’s multi-disciplinary technical team provides councils with direct access to people with proven experience across design, engineering, construction, project management and stakeholder engagement.

Their integrated delivery model is based on a transparent and highly collaborative approach to maximise cost effectiveness, innovation and efficiency while reducing waste, risk and complexity.

“Clients appreciate our full-service offer because they can deal with the one person at the one company for their advice, design, engineer or construct requirements,” Mr Matthewson said.

Wiley works with clients of all sizes and specialisations including well-known companies Nestle, Lion, Brisbane Markets Limited, Heinz, George Weston and JBS Australia.

Recently, the company has partnered with local governments in regional Queensland and New South Wales to design and construct important community facilities and agribusiness infrastructure such as saleyards, water treatment plants and heavy vehicle wash-down facilities.

“We are looking forward to working more with Queensland councils especially in the areas of water and waste water management, master planning, and essential infrastructure delivery,” he said.

Wiley is well positioned to support councils in southern Queensland and across the state with a head office in Brisbane and senior staff located in regional areas.

They were named Professional Builder of the Year at the 2013 Australian Institute of Building Excellence in Building National Awards and received the Research, Development and Technology Award. They also won the Innovation in Environmental Management Award at the Queensland Master Builder’s Brisbane Regional Awards for the master plan, design and construction of the $136 million Primo Smallgoods integrated processing plant in Brisbane.
