A GROUP of Cairns builders is accusing the Cairns Regional Council of unfair treatment in the awarding of the $26 million Tobruk pool redevelopment contract to a southern-based company.

The Cairns Construction Alliance, which includes Prime Group, Keir Queensland and Bryant Queensland, said their tender was the lowest by $280,000 yet were never given the opportunity to clarify the pool and tiling subcontractor aspects of their submissions and provide to council “additional comfort” over risk factors, unlike their competitors.

But Mayor Bob Manning has hit back, saying Adco Constructions were awarded the tender because they were the most experienced in building FINA standard pools.

“The alliance hasn’t not built one,’’ he said
