Civmec Construction and Engineering has been awarded an AUS$73m (US$57m) steelwork contract for the new Perth Stadium that includes the supply and installation of more than 14,000 tonnes (13,000 tons) of structural steel.
According to commerce minister Michael Mischin, the supply and installation of steel is one of the largest contracts for the three-year construction phase of the new Perth Stadium. He also said that about 120 people will work on the contract.
This is the second multi-million dollar contract awarded in less than a month to a WA company to deliver the new Perth Stadium. Three weeks ago Perth-based construction company CASC won an AUS$30m (US$23.5m) contract to supply formwork and concrete for the stadium.
“More than 100 tenders will be awarded during the Stadium’s three-year construction phase and 5,700 workers will help build this world-class sporting facility,” said Mischin.
Civmec, based in Henderson, will start work on the new stadium this month.
Construction of the stadium started in December and will take three years to complete. The 42m (138ft) high, five-level structure will be open in time for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
