GlobalConstruct’s CEO, Jacob Mitchell, had just announced his final decision to go for the tennis stadium construction project from the Australian government. “The Australian government is anxious to get started on the project.

Manpower to execute the various activities was not an issue, since Australia had access to an almost endless supply of workers. Additionally, many Australian subcontractors were eager to be involved in such a prestigious project.
