The calls for tenders was made under the Hodgman Liberal Government’s Buy Local Policy which prioritises the participation of local Tasmanian businesses and tradesmen.

The four new tenders opened include works such as external glazing and aluminium louvres, temporary scaffolding, structural steelwork and external cladding.
