Queensland's Big Build is the biggest decade of infrastructure delivery in our history, underpinned by a 4-year capital works program.

We are building more hospitals and housing, upgrading schools, building better transport and more renewable energy right across the state.

The more than 200,000 small businesses operating in the construction; rental hiring and real estate; and professional, scientific, and technical services industries are well positioned to benefit from this record investment.

Small businesses outside these industries will also benefit, providing other critical goods and services needed to deliver on these projects while employing locals and further stimulating economic activity across the state.

A key focus of the Queensland Small Business Strategy 2024–27 is to support small businesses to access the opportunities presented by this investment. With 20 actions delivered over 3 years, we will support and enable Queensland small businesses to share in the growth and prosperity on offer across our state, including our rural and regional communities.

Queensland's Big Build: Empowering Queensland small businesses further outlines the opportunities available for our small businesses.
