Prequalification for building contractors

The Queensland Government regularly engages building industry contractors to provide services for government building projects.

Contractors wishing to work on government building projects that exceed $1 million in value need to apply for prequalification through Queensland's whole-of-government Prequalification (PQC) System.

For non-residential building contracts with a construction cost of at least $50 million, you must apply for prequalification under the National Prequalification System.

For registration as a builder to government outside the PQC requirements (generally projects under $1 million in value), you may wish to register with QBuild.

This guide explains the process for applying for prequalification as a building contractor.
