Hutchies has officially launched our newest flagship pop-up construction training school at our Midtown Centre project in the Brisbane CBD.
Midtown Centre is a $175 million refurbishment and upgrade of the former Queensland Government-owned Health and Forestry House buildings at 155 Charlotte Street and 150 Mary Street. Several Queensland Government Departments occupied these buildings for more than three decades until they came to the end of their lifecycle.
It is now undergoing one of the largest urban regeneration projects in Australia’s history, converting it from two towers into one of the most sustainably rated buildings in the country with cutting edge operational technology and first-class amenities. When complete, it will become a new business hub in the centre of Brisbane’s heart.
Midtown Centre is an exciting opportunity to showcase the innovative design features, unique construction techniques and the important training, employment and participation initiatives that Hutchies has integrated as part of the construction over the next two years.
The event, held on Friday 22 November 2019, was attended by the Honourable Mick de Brenni, Minister for Housing and Public Works, and included a special Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony along with traditional dancing to celebrate the milestone.
