The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder has appointed a lead contractor to deliver the $16 million Kal City Centre project.
Ertech Civil Engineering was selected to undertake the works and will collaborate with local businesses and sub-contractors to optimise procurement and employment opportunities related to the project. In late 2020, the company visited visited Kalgoorlie-Boulder to meet local contractors for the project.
Ertech has previously worked on the $12 million Rockingham Beach Foreshore Revitalisation project.
WA Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan said the appointment of a lead contractor for the Kal City Centre project represents progress on the long-awaited project.
“As a WA based company with extensive experience delivering regional projects, Ertech is well positioned to work with the community and key stakeholders to harness business procurement and employment opportunities,” MacTiernan said.
“The McGowan Government has contributed $8 million towards this $16 million project, and we hope now the City will be able to move quickly towards getting works underway.”
Mining and Pastoral MLC Kyle McGinn said the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder has an opportunity to engage local contractors, including a local aboriginal workforce.
“It’s great to see another Kalgoorlie project being commenced, with State and Local Government partnership providing an important economic growth opportunity.”
