Gladstone Pound refurbishment advances to next stage

Gladstone Pound refurbishment advances to next stage

The refurbishment of the Gladstone Pound has progressed to the next stage.

The expansion and refurbishment of the Gladstone Pound estimated to cost $1.43 million has moved onto the next stage with Tomkins Commercial and Industrial Builders announced as the tenders for the project.

Gladstone-based company Tomkins have worked on projects such as the Bellbowrie Pools, The Hub in Banyo and the ACU Health Clinic.

As part of the refurbishment, Tomkins will construct a small office and kitchenette with a drop-off facility, an area for cat cages, 30 dog kennels, veterinary space, equipment storage areas and car parking.

This project may signal opportunities for apprenticeships in Gladstone, where the facility is said to be “vital” to animal control measures.

“The upgrade to the existing site, at 77 Hanson Road, Callemondah, is needed because future residential population growth forecasts for the Gladstone Region indicate that we can expect a doubling of the number of impounded pets by the year 2031,” said councillor Col Chapman, the Gladstone Regional Council’s environment portfolio spokesperson.

“The end of private operator arrangements for the impoundment of animals also drove the need for the refurbishment of the site which had previously served as council’s pound facilities.”
