Multiplex: Building on a history of outperformance
Optus Stadium and Stadium Park.

PREMIER global construction company Multiplex has shaped skylines around the world. But the impact of Multiplex’s expertise and delivery of iconic projects is felt more in Perth than any other city. The company’s home-grown roots are evident as you gaze at Perth’s city skyline, drive along Kwinana Freeway or sail through Fremantle Harbour. Optus Stadium, Crown Towers, Brookfield Place, Fiona Stanley Hospital and the Fremantle Maritime Museum are just a handful of projects constructed by Multiplex in Western Australia.

Established in Perth in 1962, Multiplex’s presence extends beyond Australia to the Middle East and India, Europe and Canada. Work-to-date comprises more than 1,000 projects with a combined value of $80 billion. As a group, Multiplex has earned over 700 industry awards.

Multiplex’s experience and expertise ranges from small builds to mega-projects across a vast array of sectors including commercial, health, retail, residential, tourism, education and infrastructure.

Regardless of project size, Multiplex strives to exceed the expectations of its partners. The company lays the foundation for success by investing a great deal of time upfront on quality, innovation and safety.

“We take the time to unpack our projects and think about ways to generate as much value as we can,” said Regional Managing Director Chris Palandri. “Collaboration is essential. We work closely with our partners to develop an intimate understanding of their goals, and determine how we will achieve them.

“Our approach ensures one team is focused around shared ambitions, and the work we undertake is meaningful and impactful for our client and surrounding communities.”

Multiplex’s ultimate objective is to outperform for people and places, a goal exemplified at Optus Stadium, Perth’s 60,000 seat, purpose-built venue completed ahead of schedule late last year.

“We were thrilled to deliver a spectacular stadium that Western Australian’s can be proud of. It has wowed visitors from all over the world and has built on our reputation for outperforming,” said Chris.

“At the same time, we were also building the Karratha Health Campus up in the Pilbara, fitting out the Telethon Kids Institute new home, and redeveloping the Mandurah Forum Shopping Centre. All very different projects, but all consistently delivered on time, on budget, and exceeding our client’s expectations.”

Multiplex’s successful delivery record is underpinned by its people, who have been responsible for the delivery of hundreds of projects throughout the State and around the world over many decades.

“We have a wealth of experience at Multiplex, with some members of the team, myself included, joining the company more than 25 years ago. Our people love exceeding expectations, which stems from a culture that encourages accountability and ownership no matter what the role.”

Multiplex employs more than 1,000 people in Australia and 5,500 around the world and utilises their experience across projects and sectors, ensuring the company capitalises on its ability to deliver on safety, quality, sustainability, time and cost.

Other landmark projects delivered by Multiplex in WA in recent years include the new Perth Busport, Claremont Quarter and the Perth Desalination Plant. Projects currently under construction include the New Museum for WA in Perth’s Cultural Centre and the Karrinyup Shopping Centre redevelopment.
