Perth business Southern Cross Electrical Engineering has won a suite of new contracts, including with ADCO Constructions and CIMIC.
The contracts total $30 million and include an award to Southern Cross subsidiary Heydey for work on a 39-storey apartment building in Sydney.
CIMIC's CPB Contractors has tasked Heydey with completing the electrical, communications and security works associated with the development, located at the southern end of the Pitt Street train station. It will house 234 apartments once built, with construction expected to finish in 2023.
Also in NSW, Southern Cross has secured work on an 18-storey, mixed-use educational facility at the University of Western Sydney.
The contract was awarded from Built and involves completing the integrated fitout of the 16,500-square metre vertical campus. It’s due to be completed late in the year.
In Queanbeyan, ADCO Constructions has awarded an electrical services contract to Heydey associated with the redevelopment of a civic and cultural precinct.
The $74 million project includes two towers that will house a purpose-built facility as well as shops, council chambers, and a public library. It's expected to be completed in early 2023.
Also today, Southern Cross announced it would refer to the company as 'SCEE Group' and to its operating business as 'SCEE Electrical', with Perth-based Geoff Baudains to become the division's chief executive on October 11.
He joins SCEE Electrical from UGL where he worked as a senior project manager for nearly two years.
Southern Cross is also relocating its head office from Naval Base to Perth's CBD at the start of November.
Its shares closed up 4.7 per cent today to trade at 67 cents.
