Leighton Contractors and Broad to deliver Elizabeth Quay project in Perth CBD19 Dec 12
Leighton Contractors Pty Limited has been awarded the Elizabeth Quay inlet and public space development contract for the Western Australian State Government, worth approximately $200 million. The work will be carried out by Leighton Contractors in conjunction with its subsidiary Broad Construction Services (WA) Pty Ltd.
It is one of a series of important State Government initiatives to develop Perth as a contemporary, liveable and globally competitive city enhancing its appeal for residents, city workers and visitors alike.
Spanning an area of approximately 10 hectares, the project includes constructing a new inlet with associated roads, parks, promenades and an island with a connecting bridge.
Peter Handel, General Manager Western Infrastructure at Leighton Contractors, said this contract is a fantastic opportunity for Leighton Contractors and Broad to be part of one of Perth CBD’s biggest projects.
“In bringing our extensive engineering and construction experience and design expertise to this development, we are able to play a big role in contributing to the revitalisation of the city.”
“We are proud to be working with Broad and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority on this iconic project for the people of Perth,” Mr Handel said.
Roger Lee, Broad Managing Director, said winning the Elizabeth Quay contract reflects the combined knowledge and experience of Leighton Contractors and Broad.
“To be awarded a project of this calibre is further evidence of the depth of capabilities the Leighton and Broad team offers clients. Working together ensures a seamless approach to delivering complex and high profile projects.”
“The project team is eager to deliver the city of Perth an exciting and world class precinct,” Mr Lee said.
A workforce of 600 workers will be required on the project, which is expected to commence in early 2013 with a scheduled completion date of mid-2015.
