- Expressions of interest opened for construction of the $16 Million Kal City Centre Project
- Project to transform Kalgoorlie’s city centre, backed by an $8 Million McGowan Government contribution and matching funding from the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder
- Construction to maximise Aboriginal employment opportunities
Expressions of interest have opened for construction of the Kal City Centre Project, a $16 Million investment to overhaul Kalgoorlie’s city centre.
“This project has been a long time in the making, and it is great to see this significant step forward.” Minister for Regional Development Alannah MacTiernan said.
“Kalgoorlie has some of the finest architecture in regional Australia, and this needs to be fully showcased.”
Project will transform three precincts within the Kalgoorlie city centre incorporating activity and event spaces, alfresco dining, a junior play space, and a new urban plaza. The project will create an inviting city centre for residents and visitors to enjoy.
By conducting an expression of interest process for the construction components of the project, the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will be able to maximise local and Aboriginal business participation through facilitated procurement workshops with interested lead construction contractors.
“I am genuinely excited to see Kal City Centre revitalisation works begin and look forward to this project maximising local and Aboriginal job opportunities.” Mining and Pastoral Region MLC Kyle McGinn said.
“Like I have always said, when the State spends money on projects it is critical that we maximise local opportunities in all facets of the project.”
Interested contractors will be invited to attend a site inspection in mid-September which will include a networking evening with local businesses interested in sub-contracting for the project.
Expressions of interest close at 2 pm on 5 October, 2020.
