The Queensland State Government has announced construction will commence in May 2020 on a new Depot for Energex, located at Barnsdale Place, Greenslopes.

Starting later this month, work is expected to begin on the new office building depot (5,000sqm) that will house a workforce of more than 200 Energex field, design and project staff.



Dr Anthony Lynham, minister for Energy outlined that the redevelopment of Energex’s Greenslopes depot will be constructed by Alder Constructions and create dozens of construction jobs.

“Energex crews also need to respond to emergencies such as car accidents and property fires to help make the scene electrical safe for emergency workers”.

“The building will house existing staff from the Greenslopes depot, as well as additional Energex staff from other Brisbane locations,”  

“This includes 100 field and rapid response crews to deploy around the clock, whether it’s for power issues after storms or to assist at emergency scenes.” Mr Lynham said.



Joe Kelly, Member for Greenslopes outlined that construction would provide dozens of tradespeople jobs throughout the life of the project.

With more construction in the area and additional Energex staff based in Greenslopes there’s no doubt local businesses will also benefit from additional people working nearby,” he said.

Once completed the new site will increase light vehicle parking to 130, cater for nearly 80 response vehicles and work seamlessly with the existing 3000 square metre warehouse.

Queensland’s publicly-owned electricity companies – Powerlink, Ergon, Energex, CS Energy, Stanwell Corp and CleanCo, will invest more than $2.2 billion on capital works in 2019-20, supporting up to 4900 jobs.
