The Cyclone Debbie rebuild continues in Central and North QLD

September 15, 2017

Earlier this year saw the devastating aftermath of tropical Cyclone Debbie in Central and North Queensland. Many months later PDQ are still at work, undergoing restorations for multiple businesses across the region.

The storm caused havoc across the State in March, with powerful winds and severe floods triggering damage to thousands of homes and businesses. As the mammoth clean-up began, our dedicated team at PDQ commenced work immediately on a number projects requiring urgent rebuilds and repairs.

“Our team understood the importance of getting local businesses back on their feet. We know the steps to take in order to return our client’s properties back to a pre-loss condition as soon as possible” explains Commercial and Insurance Manager, James Aitken.

PDQ have successfully completed, and are still undergoing a number of insurance rectification projects across the Mackay and Whitsunday region, including remote works on Hamilton Island, Proserpine, Airlie Beach and Bowen – which endured substantial structural damage as a result of Debbie’s ruin.
PDQ’s strong ties to this region have allowed us to work hand in hand with the council, local subcontractors and suppliers to undergo speedy recovery efforts.

PDQ have been delivering quality projects in the Mackay region for many years, always with a collaborative and quality outcome focus. With permanent offices in Mackay, Townsville, Cairns and Rockhampton to cater to our regional clients, our team have developed lasting relationships within these communities.

“Having offices within these areas enables us to utilise our subcontractor base and support local businesses with a view of returning the community back to business as usual” says Mr Aitken.

With the extreme weather behind us and all hands on deck, PDQ are proud to play a part in the rebuild of this iconic region.
