* 75,000m2 retail Gross Floor Area

* 2,000 residential apartments.

The staged roll out of SunCentral Maroochydore offers ongoing investment and development opportunities over the next 20 years.

Stage 1 includes a mix of commercial, retail and residential uses and will be released to the market in 2016.



Stage 1A Civil, Electrical and Landscape Construction

Stage 1A is a 9ha site that will become the CBD core of the SunCentral project and have a high level of finishes from pavements to both hard and soft scape elements. The Stage 1A site will be delivered to the successful tenderer with bulk earthworks complete and fully cleared.

Further information relating to the work requirements are contained within Work Package, which includes the following project documents; Requirement of Suppliers (Document with the Work Package) and "Typical Stage 1A Civil, Electrical, and Landscape Drawings" (in the Project Drawings below).



The EOI is the first phase in a multi-phase process designed to select the most capable and innovative contractor to construct the Stage 1A Civil, Electrical and Landscape works.


Phase 1 - Expressions of Interest

Respondents are invited to submit an EOI to demonstrate their capability to construct this landmark urban project and demonstrate their ability to add value to the project by participating in a value engineering process to refine the current design.

In responding to this invitation, respondents should submit an EOI that fully addresses the evaluation criteria set out within the Requirement of Suppliers.

Shortlisting will be at the absolute discretion of SunCentral Maroochydore Pty Ltd and based on the assessment criteria contained within the Requirement of Suppliers.


Phase 2 - Preliminary Pricing and Value Engineering

Respondents selected for Phase 2 will be issued with an Information Memorandum (IM) outlining the terms, procedures and deliverables for Phase 2 and Phase 3 and the current detailed design, specification, and bill of quantities for Stage 1A.


Phase 3 - Competitive Pricing

Following completion of Phase 2 respondents will be issued with an Invitation To Tender (ITT) based on an amended design, specification, and bill of quantities. For the purpose of clarity only respondents selected for Phase 2 will be issued with an ITT.


All questions relating to the Requirement of Suppliers or Typical Stage 1A Civil, Electrical, and Landscape Drawings should be addressed to Mr Neale Kaalund at SunCentral Maroochydore:



As a first step respondents should ensure they have an up to date company profile and capability statement on ICN or register with ICN and complete these items. In the Summary Full Description section of the profile you should include details of any recent projects that involved innovations your company made that improved designs, construction methods, completed works or other aspect of the project.

Respondents must read both the "Requirement of Suppliers" and "Typical Stage 1A Civil, Electrical, and Landscape Drawings" before attempting to respond.

For questions relating to ICN company registration or upgrading an existing profile, refer to Contact details at the top right hand side of this page.



To submit an EOI it is necessary to complete the Registration Questions that appear on clicking the "Send Expression of Interest" button. A number of these require upload of company documents.
