PROFESSIONAL services company GHD has been appointed by Lendlease to provide design and consulting services on the Department of Defence $365m building works project – known as Building Works Stage 1, HMAS Stirling and Henderson.
This project is to provide the first stage of essential, land-based facilities and infrastructure including accommodation and specialist training centre requirements at HMAS Stirling and Henderson Defence sites in Western Australia.
The infrastructure facilities are to primarily support Navy’s new Perth-based ships including the Arafura Class Offshore Patrol Vessel.
GHD will provide a range of services including architecture, structural and facade engineering, communications design, security design, trunk electrical, BIM management, virtual reality consulting and materials engineering.
“Not only will the new facilities support the new Navy ships and crew training, the project will bring a much needed economic boost to Western Australia,” said Lance Carter, GHD’s project manager.
“The project is expected to have a workforce of up to 750 people,” he said.
“Being selected for this significant project demonstrates our strong Defence capabilities and our ability to mobilise multidisciplinary teams to support clients on a wide range of challenges.”
Construction is expected to begin in late 2020 and be completed in 2023.
