Wormall Civil has thus far been awarded three contracts by the WA state government land agency LandCorp, with a total value of approximately $23 million as part of the Transform Peel works at Peel Business Park
The two initial contracts for the earthworks and critical underground power works to facilitate development of the business park have been completed
The civil works package valued at almost $14million alone has also been awarded with works commenced in September 2019
This critical trunk-servicing infrastructure was the first step in creating the business park which is designed to deliver major economic opportunities and jobs for the Peel region.
In total the infrastructure works are expected to create more than 300 jobs, with a further 160 permanent operational workforce jobs for the Peel region once the McGowan Government’s 120 hectare development area is fully operational.
Once fully completed, the Peel Business Park, which is a flagship project of the Industrial Land Authority, will create about 2,000 local jobs and inject about $1 billion into the Western Australian economy each year.
The first eleven lots in Stage 1 have been released with early sales demonstrating strong interest from a mix of agribusinesses and industrial companies wanting to relocate or start new businesses at the park.
Wormall Civil was procured using the newly developed Western Australian Industry Participation Strategy. This strategy provides local businesses with full, fair and reasonable opportunity to access and win State Government supply contracts.
Comments attributed to Lands Minister Ben Wyatt:
“The awarding of the work to Wormall Civil underlines the McGowan Government’s commitment to local content, and delivering opportunities for Western Australian businesses and the creation of new jobs.
“Wormall Civil is playing a pioneering part in the development of the Peel Business Park at Nambeelup, which will kickstart an agribusiness and innovation hub that is expected to deliver major economic opportunities and jobs for the Peel region.”
