Valmec has secured a $6 million contract with Newmont Mining, while BGC Australia and Devlyn Constructions have won Bunbury school construction works worth a combined $5.9 million.
Valmec secured the contract for infrastructure works at Newmont’s Tanami project phase two expansion in the Northern Territory.
The Kewdale-based company said the contract was the first step in its strategy for future growth in gas and infrastructure sectors within the NT.
Chief executive Steve Dropulich said the company was pleased with the contract win.
“Having recently completed gas construction and pipeline testing works on behalf of AGIG on Newmont Goldcorp’s Tanami power project, Valmec looks forward to continuing its relationship with Newmont and its Tanami operations,” he said.
A full funding decision on the phase two expansion is expected in the second half of this year.
Meanwhile, BGC beat six other submissions to secure a $3.75 million contract to construct a new science block at the Eaton Community College near Bunbury, which must be completed by March 2020.
The works involve four general laboratories, two chemistry laboratories, one engineering maker space, science preparation areas, storage and staff study areas.
Devlyn Construction also secured work at a Bunbury area school, winning a $1.85 million contract for STEM refurbishment at Newton Moore Senior High School.
The works include the refurbishment of an existing material technology building to a STEM Centre.
The works are set to be complete by the end of term four this year, and Devlyn was selected to complete the contract ahead of three other submissions.
