Special Forces Challenge “The Ultimate Fundraiser”

Indesco is excited to announce that Director Aaron Hazelton has volunteered to partake as a recruit in the Terry Campese Foundation (TCF) 2022 Special Forces Challenge.

Inspired by SAS Australia, a quasi-military training reality TV show, this challenge will raise money for the Terry Campese Foundation (TCF) –  A foundation that aims to help those requiring crisis accommodation and provides greater opportunities for marginilised & disadvantaged youth in the community.


The Challenge:
On 26 & 27 February 2022, recruits will undergo a series of physical and psychological activities over 30 hours, across 2 days and will be undertaken by 24 local businesspeople.

The challenge will be run by an elite team of ex-military personnel who will direct the recruits through the “grueling challenges… and to their breaking point.”

The Mission:
Recruits must raise $50k. Help Aaron raise more than his competition!

Good luck Aaron!

Ground has been broken for Queanbeyan’s $74 million civic and cultural precinct.

Last week, Indesco’s Aaron Hazelton proudly attended Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council’s Sod-turning and smoking ceremony by local elder, Dr Aunty Matilda House for the commencement of the construction phase of the Queanbeyan Civic and Cultural Precinct!

Being born and bred in the Queanbeyan region, Aaron was particularly pleased to be involved in such a community-focused development.

“It’s great to be part of a project that will have such a lasting impact on the Queanbeyan community”


Indesco carried out the structural and civil engineering detailed design for a new 6 storey office building which will become the Council’s new headquarters. The structure will link in the existing Bicentennial Hall and the Queanbeyan Performing arts centre which involved new structural supports and staged removal of existing facades.


The design also included a large basement car park and podium over with a wealth of landscaping and architectural storage buildings and shade structures. In addition, the ongoing operation of the Q, Bicentennial Hall, Council Chambers and other adjacent Council and private buildings will be required to be maintained and considered in staging of the works.


This development comprises of a new head office for council staff, the Queanbeyan library, a NSW government office. Community spaces and a public domain could also be constructed.

Indesco is assisting in the development and documentation of the staging of these works as part of our engagement.

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (QPRC) Mayor Tim Overall said the sod turning ceremony marks a special milestone in the city’s transformation.

“This new precinct will provide linkages to The Q and the Bicentennial Hall and draw together a new library, public domain for civic events, conference meeting rooms and facilities, as well as create new basement car parking and provide a new head office for council staff,” he said.

“It is the catalyst that allows us to get on with the transformation of the CBD by freeing up council-owned properties for possible future development.

“It is a key project in bringing more people and vitality to the heart of Queanbeyan.”

It has been enjoyable working with the amazing design team Cox Architecture, App Corporation, Prism Facades and look forward to supporting ADCO Constructions during the construction of this exciting project.
