Sime Building and Construction has won an $8.36 million contract to construct an indoor sports and recreation centre.

The Shire of Esperance is the project's proponent, which is supported by a $4.78 million investment from the state government.

Esperance-based Sime is expected to commence construction in May, with a likely build time of 12 months.

The first step will be work on a new car park, which is set to be completed by the end of August.

The facility will include new indoor courts, kiosk, kitchen, change room facilities and storage space for user groups.

It will also act as a venue for local, regional and state events such as the Esperance Agricultural Show, and provide overflow tourist facilities when caravan parks reach capacity.

In a statement, the state government said the local content component of the contract was expected to exceed 75 per cent.

Acting Regional Development Minister Dave Kelly said the project would improve regional liveability, increase participation in sport and recreation, and provide a modern venue for major events.

"The Shire of Esperance has aligned their tender processes with the McGowan government's commitment to maximising local content on government projects,” he said.

"Awarding this tender to an Esperance-based construction company will support local businesses and jobs, and further drive regional capacity."
