Local Government

Initially beginning with a client base of four regional shires (Chinchilla, Murilla, Taroom and Bendemere), Brandon & Associates has maintained strong relationships, working with many councils throughout South-West and Central Queensland over its 57-year history. 

Currently servicing councils including Western Downs Regional Council, Maronoa Regional Council, Bulloo Shire Council, Paroo, Blackall-Tambo and the Central Highlands Regional Council, we are fully equipped to offer a complete range of local government engineering services from planning and administration through to construction supervision and building certifications.

We take great pride in developing our extensive knowledge of relationships with local government to continue to build on this local understanding, whilst importantly ensuring the conservation and reshaping of both built and natural environments in the areas in which we work and live.
