Barker Ryan Stewart Opens North Queensland Office

Barker Ryan Stewart is pleased to announce the opening of our North Queensland office located in Townsville, further expanding our presence in Queensland.

Earlier this year, we expanded our service offering in Queensland to include urban planning, civil engineering, and project management. Now, the opening of our North Queensland office allows us to continue providing better outcomes for our client’s projects across the state.


Barker Ryan Stewart’s CEO and Director, Andrea McDonald said, “The opening of our Townsville office is another step taken by BRS to expand our services in Queensland.”

“We are excited to be a part of the opportunities in this area and provide our services to businesses as the region grows.”

Our Expansion into North Queensland

The establishment of a North Queensland office came to fruition under the guidance of Ansie Joubert, Barker Ryan Stewart’s Senior Design Engineer based in Townsville.

With over a decade of experience in the consulting industry, Ansie has acted as the Project Design Lead for a range of infrastructure projects including the design of new roads, bulk earthworks and services, and detail site design.

“With the opening of our North Queensland office, we’re committed to providing our clients with tailored solutions and expertise to successfully deliver projects in Townsville and its surrounds. I am looking forward to seeing what our team will achieve as we continue to grow,” says Ansie.

Upcoming Opportunities in the Region

The future of North Queensland is bright, with significant economic opportunities and infrastructure projects set to shape the region over the next two decades.

With a robust and diverse economy boasting a gross regional product estimated at $16 billion, North Queensland stands as a strategic gateway to the Asia-Pacific region, poised to capitalise on broader economic opportunities.

As the largest city in North Queensland, Townsville plays a key role in connecting the region and is currently experiencing an exciting period of change and growth.

To support this expected growth, all three levels of government collaborated to implement the Townsville City Deal, a 15-year commitment set to revitalise Townsville through investment in local infrastructure, economic growth, industry activation, job creation and city revitalisation.

The city is already home to established industries such as defence, agriculture and resources, providing ongoing opportunities for expansion. Additionally, Townsville is in a unique position to capitalise on emerging sectors including the production and export of renewable energy.

How Barker Ryan Stewart can assist

Barker Ryan Stewart is looking forward to continuing our expansion into Queensland through our newly opened North Queensland office located in Townsville.

Throughout 2023, our team has been actively involved in delivering civil engineering design services for a range of infrastructure projects for Townsville City Council. We are well-placed and resourced to provide our civil engineering, urban planning, and project management services for your next project in the region.
