Four local construction companies have won a combined $28.5 million worth of work from the state government.

Wangara-based Duratec Australia, a subsidiary of diversified contractor Ertech, has received a $19.9 million contract for restoration work at West Perth office tower Dumas House.

Work under the contract, which is already underway, will include the replacement of all external cladding, improvements to the ceilings of the balcony platforms, and water proofing, draining repairs and gutter improvements.

Damage to glazed terracotta blocks will also be remedied, while repairs to the building podium, which leaks rainwater to two basement levels underneath the building, will also be carried out.

The building, which houses state government ministerial offices, received an extensive interior facelift in 2012.

LKS Constructions has been awarded a $1.57 million contract for upgrades to the early childhood facility at Dianella Heights Primary School.

In late 2014, it was brought to Education Minister Peter Collier’s attention that the current facility was overcrowded and contained a kindergarten room without a toilet, and also faced a number of maintenance issues due to the building’s age.

Two existing rooms are set to be refurbished while an existing play area will be expanded.

Meanwhile, Bibra Lake-based Tracc Civil has won a $2.34 million contract to provide its services to the Sunset Heritage Precinct in Dalkeith, which is currently undergoing an infrastructure upgrade.

The site, which was formerly the Sunset Hospital, is set to receive new utility services and landscaping upgrades, along with building preservation work to protect the heritage-listed site.

PS Chester & Son has picked up a $4.68 million contract for expansion work at Wandina Primary School.

The scope of work involves construction of a four-classroom teaching block, a three-classroom and arts room teaching block, and a library and staff room.

Wandina Primary, located in the state’s Mid West, is getting an $8 million expansion overall which is expected to be completed by the start of 2017.
