Energy Queensland Stafford depot reaches practical completion


Energy Queensland’s crews now have improved access to Brisbane’s inner-northern suburbs and CBD with the delivery of a new $17.5M depot at Stafford which was project managed by Ranbury.

The new facility includes over 3,290m2 of combined warehouse and office space and is home to approximately 150 field and support staff and 40 response vehicles.

The project scope included:

  • Demolition of existing buildings and site preparation (including Asbestos removal).
  • Extensive earthworks including excavation and remediation of 20,000mof soil.
  • Construction of a new ground floor and level one office space (1,290m2) and warehouse (2,040m2).
  • External works including new sewerage, electricity and water connections, roads, hardstand, car parking, truck wash, retaining walls, fencing, landscaping, signage, gates and associated requirements.

The new custom-designed, centralised facility replaces Energy Queensland’s existing leased premises, allowing Energy Queensland to deliver quicker response times and improved levels of service on Brisbane’s northside.

Scott Kennelly, Ranbury Principal of Property and Building, said Ranbury were grateful for the opportunity to work with the Energy Queensland project team on another important project for the business.

“We have worked with Energy Queensland on a number of projects over recent years and that combined experience helped the project team work through a number of challenges on the project such as dealing with a contaminated site. The outcome provides a much-needed facility for local Energy Queensland operations. Ranbury appreciates the opportunity to contribute to the success of the project,” said Mr Kennelly.

Ranbury worked collaboratively with Alder Constructions and PDT Architects to deliver the new depot and is excited to continue our relationship with Energy Queensland on the current construction of the new Energy Queensland Greenslopes redevelopment project.

Construction on the $32.5M redevelopment of its Greenslopes depot facility commenced in May 2020, with 5,000m2 of office space acting as a base for more than 200 field, design and project staff.

These two projects continue Ranbury’s partnership with Energy Queensland which spans more than ten years and includes the construction/redevelopment of 15 facilities across Southeast Queensland.

Energy Queensland provides connection and supply of electricity to 2.25 million customers across Queensland, and the sale of electricity to 738,000 retail customers in regional Queensland.
