WILEY LATCHES ON TO ROOF PROJECT

ENGINEERING and construction company Wiley has secured the second phase of a $10 million roofing project for Brisbane Produce Market.

The Brisbane-based firm is on schedule to complete stage one next month, involving a $6.3 million roof upgrade to the wholesale produce marketplace in Rocklea.

Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) awarded Wiley the $3.7 million contract to design and build stage two of the project, which will extend the existing shelter by 2,500sqm.

Wiley managing director Tom Wiley says the deal demonstrates the company's reputation as a food manufacturing facility specialist.

"More than 7000 growers supply produce for sale at the Brisbane Markets and up to 4000 people work or do business there on a daily basis so this project has been highly complex," Wiley says.

"We were part of a collaborative process of engagement undertaken by BML over a three-year period to ensure the trading floor tenants were consulted and were part of the process."

BML CEO Andrew Young (pictured left with BML assistant property manager Luke Leeson) says the key focus has been redeveloping the markets site since it was acquired in 2002.

"The roofing over our trading floors, where more than 50 primary, multi-million dollar wholesalers do business, is a vital component of that," Young says.

"We are pleased with the progress Wiley is making on stage one and we look forward to continuing to work together on stage two to ensure we keep providing international-standard facilities and services."

Construction on stage two is expected to be completed in August.
