With 11 years of continuous works with the Australian Department of Defence, Leighton Contractors has successfully established a strong presence in the defence sector.

Delivering best practice results

The sector presents unique challenges including the inherent requirement for security. Through state-of-the-art equipment, technological innovation and a team of highly skilled professionals, Leighton Contractors is able to commit to such projects and deliver best practice results.

We currently deliver the Defence Logistics Transformation Program (DLTP) works at RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland and we have successfully completed a range of projects at Defence instillations across northern Australia.

Our services include:

  • Financing.
  • Design and construct.
  • Public Private Partnership (PPP) services.
  • Telecommunications and information technology.
  • Asset management.
  • Facility management.

Breadth of experience

These capabilities were successfully applied to deliver the Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC) facility for the Australian Department of Defence in New South Wales.  As the first PPP project undertaken by the Australian Government, the project delivered an efficient transition into the operations phase and full service delivery of the complex, high security facility.

The Leighton Contractors led consortium was also selected to design, construct, operate and maintain the facility for a 30 year period, illustrating the ability of Leighton Contractors to work with key stakeholders, the community and project end users to find solutions with ‘whole-of-life’ value.
