It’s been months since our last “Where are they now?” so why not tell you about one of our Insurance projects, located in Mungindi; where half the town is located in Queensland and the other half in New South Wales. Imagine the rivalry come State of Origin time!

Due to this location, Paynters connected with the Moree Plains Shire Council to better understand the local community, focusing heavily on local subcontractor engagement.

The project? A small shopping precinct that was ravaged by a fire during peak COVID-19 times.

With the small town being split and this being the only supermarket (on the NSW side) it did provide difficulties during state boarder closures for half the town.

Originally undertaking the make safe, Paynters are now completing demolition, including asbestos removal which will see it brought back to a brownfields site.
