Builders win $36m school contracts

Universal Constructions and Badge have been awarded contracts by the state government to build three new schools in Perth, worth a combined $36.4 million.

Universal Constructions won a $14.3 million contract to build the Annie’s Landing Primary School in Ellenbrook and a $10 million contract to build the Harrisdale Primary School, at Armadale.

A spokesperson from Universal said the scope of work involved constructing seven buildings at each school, along with car parks and playing fields.

Both contracts were awarded yesterday.

Meanwhile, Osborne Park-based Badge recently won a $12.1 million contract to build the Trinity Primary School in Alkimos.

In the last two years, Universal has won a series of contracts to renovate and build new schools, as it has focused the bulk of its business on the delivery of educational facilities.

It was awarded an $11 million contract to build the North Yanchep Primary School, which has since been completed.

In 2013 it was hired to build year seven facilities at Comet Bay College and at Kelmscott Senior High School, and was contracted to build the North Butler Primary School, for a combined $30 million.

Outside of schools, Universal is also currently building a 21-house aged care facility in Spearwood for Aegis Aged Care, and a new fire station in Butler.

Badge won a suite of major contracts in early 2014, which included an $8.2 million deal for construction and refurbishment work at Northam Senior High School.

It followed work it had been contracted in the year prior, to build a performing arts centre at the same school.
