The official groundbreaking for Chevron's Wheatstone project was held earlier this month.

John Holland wins $370m Wheatstone camp

Leighton Holdings subsidiary John Holland has secured a $370 million contract to design and construct the accommodation village for Chevron's Wheatstone gas project near Onslow.

The 3,800-bed village project is one of the first major contracts to be awarded for Wheatstone.

Work on the village will begin immediately and is due for completion in the second quarter of 2014.

In addition to the accommodation units, the village will include recreation centres, a football oval, swimming pool, tennis courts, medical centre and dining facilities.

John Holland said the project would generate “hundreds of local employment opportunities”, and that a range of strategies would be implemented to maximise the number of apprentices and trainees and provide employment and economic opportunities for Indigenous people.

The contract was with the project’s lead engineering contractor Bechtel.

Southern Cross Station, Desalination Plant, Airport Link, Al Habtour (Middle East partner).... All are losers! Winning a project could mean losing more money! Is Leighton Holdings up-to-it?
