This did go to tender last year. I don't recall any local firms applying. Maxcon was announced last year when they started the demolition works. The announcement is a "re announcement" of sorts as construction is commencing.

That's a very insular perspective. The build should be awarded to whoever puts in the best quote.
What should happen doesn't always happen.

I am sure that you heard of 'preferred tenderers', where other builders essentially don't even get a leg in. I didn't even see this project go out to tender and just heard that Maxcon were awarded (gifted) the job. Likewise, what also happens is that Maxcon has a propensity to use Melbourne resources and award sub-contracts to Melbourne contractors. Call it a "very insular perspective" if you like, but it does little for employment in SA.
I guess that depends on the definition of "employment in SA". All of the people working on site are working in SA. I guess a few of them could be fly-in, fly-out from Melbourne, increasing the occupancy of Adelaide's hotels. Most of them are likely to live here, at least for the duration (12 months?) of the build. During that time, they are SA residents working in SA, and various laws would require them to have SA drivers licenses and electoral enrolments. I think that makes them "South Australians".

"Best quote" is not always the same as "cheapest quote", and we don't have access to the assessment criteria.

What laws would those be exactly? Why would they need South Australian drivers licenses?
You can vote at any polling station. They could even fly back for the day to vote, or they could submit a postal vote.

  • Transfer an interstate or overseas driver's licence If you become a permanent resident of South Australia, you must get your South Australian driver's licence within ninety days.
  • Change your address Every time you move, you must update your address on the electoral roll or your name could be removed and you will be unable to vote. You are eligible to enrol for your new address if you have lived there for at least one month.

Yeh ok, except they're not permanent residents in SA.

The second stage of Penny place has been lodged which is to the south east side of the lot. This is the final piece to round off what should be a square with retail around all edges once finished.
Six (6) storey mixed-use development comprising five (5) levels of office, ground floor shop, ancillary car parking and landscaped open space
