Five local companies will share in a combined $92 million worth of contracts awarded by the state government, with the majority of the work comprising school construction jobs.

Cockram Construction has secured the largest share of the awards, winning a $37.5 million contract for the second stage of upgrades to Shenton College.

Shenton College is one of several western suburbs schools that have come under increasing enrolment pressure since the Hollywood, Swanbourne, City Beach and Scarborough senior high schools were closed in the 1990s.

The upgrades, which include new classrooms and specialist facilities, are expected to accommodate an additional 1,000 students.

Adco Constructions also received a sizeable share of the contracts with a $33.5 million contract to build the first stage of the new Baldivis South Secondary School, which will lie east of the Rockingham city centre.

The first stage is expected to be open by January 2019 and cater for 725 students from years seven to 12.

The second stage has been earmarked for completion in 2023, with enrolment capacity to expand to 1,450 students.

Meanwhile, local contractors Futureproof Building Services, PMC Roofing and AE Hoskins & Sons will share in an estimated $21 million worth of roof plumbing repairs and maintenance across the Perth and Peel regions over the coming financial year.

The contract was based on an hourly payment rate, with expiry set for June 30 next year.
