Broad Construction has been awarded a contract by the West Australian Government to deliver the expansion of the Casuarina maximum security prison, located to the south of Perth. The work includes the construction of a high security unit, two mainstream accommodation units, as well as support and industries buildings.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “Supporting essential infrastructure – be it expressways or correctional facilities – is a core capability for CIMIC. Our experience in delivering infrastructure will support safe, reliable outcomes for our clients and engage local workers and businesses to increase work opportunities and other community benefits.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears said: “Broad has industry leading experience in delivering essential community facilities like schools, hospitals and prisons. Our team will work closely with the Department of Justice, and particularly WA Corrective Services, to ensure that this important project is delivered safely while also maximising local employment opportunities.”
The works in Western Australia have commenced and are scheduled to be completed in 2022.
