Major Projects


Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) supports the delivery of major projects in our region with infrastructure key to regional prosperity. Maximising outcomes along the journey of major projects, during construction through to operation and maintenance, ensures our regional economy thrives. We aim to maximise full, fair and reasonable opportunity for local businesses to compete for work.

As a vital service within TSBE, the Energy and Infrastructure team identifies commercial opportunities for members and fosters relationships through a number of seminars and functions as well as strategic business introductions. 

Typically linked to major projects and infrastructure, Energy and Infrastructure members are predominantly non-retail firms providing products and services to a buyer.

The focus of the Energy and Infrastructure team is to bring these trade-based businesses to the attention of industry - highlighting possible working partnerships in the region and then drilling down into individual business development opportunities.

We can provide comprehensive information on current and future projects and what is needed to secure potential contracts.  We are proud to offer our services to our members, linking business is what we do best.

The Energy and Infrastructure team works closely with a number of high-level members and Council partners to attract investment and the flow-on effect to businesses of all sizes is significant.

Representing the region interstate and overseas, we are a voice in the marketplace and the exposure generated by TSBE and the Energy and Infrastructure team allows businesses to leverage off our network and create lucrative opportunities for the future.

And that means that you need to be connected…you need to be part of this dynamic, pro-active organisation to fully utilise your business potential.

What Our Members Say About Us

“When you are building world class infrastructure in regional Australia you need to be able to hit the ground running when looking to engage locally experienced and qualified suppliers and subcontractors. Through the membership of TSBE, we were able to identify packages of work that would best suit local expertise and deliver a quality product on time. It was through this engagement that Nexus Delivery were able to successfully exceed their commitment to local industry participation and this would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the assistance of the team at TSBE. The local industry knowledge that TSBE has of its own membership, and the opportunities available within the region, are testament to their professional approach to not just identifying opportunities but also helping to deliver them too.”

Scott Dickson, Procurement Manager - Nexus Toowoomba Second Range Crossing

“TSBE continues to be a strong advocate for our region translating potential opportunities into local business growth. We have experienced the benefits of TSBE’s active engagement with their members and have enjoyed the opportunity to engage with new clients and projects that would otherwise be difficult to access for a business of our size. We look forward to continuing to work alongside TSBE and the membership base to not only grow our business but enhance opportunities for the broader region.”

Barry O’Sullivan, Director - Newlands Group

“Being a member of TSBE has provided Minstaff Survey with the most beneficial platform within the Toowoomba region to network with current and prospective clients. The expertise and shared professional knowledge of the TSBE Team has been extremely helpful to gain industry insight and generate work for our company.”

Jake Laing, General Manager - Minstaff

‘As a fellow Toowoomba based business, Master Hire is proud to be a founding member of TSBE. Over the years, many Master Hire staff have attended various events hosted by TSBE across the Darling Downs and South East Queensland and have found these events a great opportunity to meet new contacts, catch up with old friends and gain insights into new construction projects, oil and gas developments and more recently, renewable energy plans. The TSBE Exchange platform provides accurate and timely project leads and the TBSE Energy & Infrastructure team have introduced Master Hire to many key contacts on several projects. Any company looking to expand their business activities on the Darling Downs and Surat Basin region, should strongly consider joining TSBE.”

Matthew Prendergast, Regional Manager, Darling Downs & Lockyer - Master Hire
