4. Consultant selection and commissioning

Office fitout projects are complex, involve inherent risks and require expert knowledge and skills for successful implementation. The Department of Housing and Public Works (HPW) requires that appropriate, competent and qualified consultants be engaged for the design and documentation of office fitout projects in owned and leased buildings controlled by HPW.

Consultant selection must be consistent with the objectives of the Queensland Procurement Policy and consultants must be acceptable under the Prequalification (PQC) system administered by HPW.

It is preferred that HPW is engaged to manage the procurement, design, documentation and project management for office fitout projects funded wholly or partly through the Office Accommodation Program.

For advice regarding the selection of office fitout project consultants, please contact HPW.
