Fifteen companies registered an initial expression of interest in the project and nine were invited to submit a formal tender.
‘‘The committee spent the time to make sure that the construction of the hub will fit the expectations of the community while offering a great business opportunity for potential business operators,’’ Winton Wetlands chief executive Jim Grant said.
‘‘We were pleased by the quality of the submissions and the local interest in the project.
‘‘This interest has kept this work local and has provided a great opportunity to the regional economy and jobs.’’
The hub is part of the first stage of the master plan for the wetlands, which includes the development and construction of infrastructure at key locations around the reserve.

‘‘The hub, once completed, will bring together all of the recent works and will be a fantastic introduction to the site as an interpretive centre as well as a meeting point for coffee and community get-togethers.’’
