Wangara-based Ertech has been appointed lead contractor to a project set to revamp Kalgoorlie’s city centre, while SRG Global will build a $15.5 million water tank in Karratha.

The $16 million Kal City Centre project involves the redevelopment of three precincts to feature activity and event spaces, alfresco dining, a children’s play area, and a plaza.

The new precincts, designed by local architect ASPECT Studios, is co-funded by the state government and the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

As lead contractor, Ertech will undertake major construction works alongside local businesses and subcontractors, having already met with Kalgoorlie-Boulder contractors late last year. The project is due for completion in early 2022.

Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan said the revamp was long-awaited.

"As a WA-based company with extensive experience delivering regional projects, Ertech is well positioned to work with the community and key stakeholders to harness business procurement and employment opportunities," she said.

Ertech's experience includes work on the state government's $12 million revamp to the Rockingham beach foreshore, completed in 2019. More recently, it was contracted for stage three works on the South Coast Highway upgrades for Main Roads WA.

Ertech operates nationally and has more than 230 staff in Western Australia, according to Business News Data & Insights.

Meanwhile, Perth-based SRG Global has secured construction works on a $15.5 million state government project in Karratha.

Water Minister Dave Kelly said the project would enhance the town's water supply with an improved cyclone-proof water storage tank. The 20 million litre tank replaces one that was damaged by Cyclone Damien in February last year.

The new concrete tank will better withstand weather events and require less maintenance, Mr Kelly said. It forms part of the $968 million allocated in the 2020-21 state budget towards regional water infrastructure projects.

Construction work begins next month and is due to complete late in the year.
