Centre progresses

THE seven applicants expressing interest in building Perth’s Convention and Exhibition Centre have survived the first cut.

Five of the seven are consortia. Only Burswood and Leighton Contractors have put in individual bids.

The remainder are Convention WA made up of Macquarie Bank, Abigroup and Consolidated Constructions; Kwobbrup comprising Thiess Contractors, Hocktief AG and Venue Creative Services; Lend Lease made up of Lend Lease Corporation, John Holland Group and Delaware North (Australia); Multiplex comprising Multiplex Constructions, Accor Asia Pacific and Ogden IFC (Perth); and a Grocon International/ Transfield joint venture.

After the seven make their presentations on May 19 and 20, they will be whittled down to a shortlist of three, to be announced in July. Those shortlisted must submit detailed proposals by November.

After evaluation, the taskforce will begin negotiations with the two applicants submitting proposals deemed most beneficial to WA.

A preferred builder is expected to be chosen by April 2000 with the project most likely to be completed in late 2002.
