PS Structures, Ertech and WBHO Infrastructure are among contractors that have won $53 million of work from the state government in recent weeks, while PwC has been selected for two major consulting reviews.

The biggest winner was PS Structures, a Balcatta-based business, which won a $41 million contract to redevelop Balcatta High School.

Five businesses were invited to tender on that job, according to the government tenders web site.

PS said it had previously worked on a refurbishment at Crown in Burswood and Joondalup Resort.

Ertech was selected for a $4.4 million contract to upgrade a training wall at Beadon Creek.

Modelling by the Department of Transport found there was a risk the wall would fail during a cyclonic event.

“The Beadon Creek training wall was constructed in 1968... to maintain the creek entrance and navigation channel,” the department said.

“Inspections of the training wall performed most recently in 2016 found that the structure is in need of refurbishment/upgrades.   

“The importance of the training wall has increased since the construction of the Onslow Marine Support Base in 2017, which comprises an approach channel and wharf to allow access and berthing for offshore marine supply and service vessels.”

WBHO Infrastructure won an $8.2 million contract to upgrade an access road to the proposed Square Kilometre Array astronomy project.

PwC picked up a $1.8 million contract for due diligence work on the sale of the state government’s betting agency, the TAB.

That will including accounting, tax, financial, separation planning and technology advice.

Tabcorp confirmed interest in an acquisition in February, while Morgan Stanley has estimated a sale might be worth $280 million.

A second win for PwC was a $537,607 contract for Westport, to deliver an independent multi-criteria analysis work.
