Observer moves with the times
MORE than a million dollars has been spent in transforming the old Observer newspaper building.
Local builder Paul Capuano was appointed to lead a team to refurbish the Goondoon St building into QGC Pty Limited's new Gladstone operations office.
QGC operations director Walter Simpson is proud to say the project was centred locally. All 35 tradespeople were from the area and white goods, window fittings and landscaping supplies were also bought locally.
"This is in line with our approach to construction and operation of QCLNG," Mr Simpson said.
The two-level office, for up to 90 people, will support operations at the liquefied natural gas plant being built on Curtis Island.
