The South Australian construction sector is poised for a period of strong and prosperous growth on the back of a number of major infrastructure projects, according to ProjectCentre.
ProjectCentre, a provider of web-based collaborative project delivery systems for the construction and mining infrastructure sectors, has forecast growth based on its relationship with key firms in the industry, such as client Baulderstone.
Baulderstone has selected ProjectCentre for a number of high profile South Australian projects including the $350 million redevelopment of the Adelaide Oval and the $350 million Adelaide Convention Centre redevelopment.
This comes in addition to the Department of Defence, which uses ProjectCentre to manage the development of the Warrant Officer and Non-Commissioned Officer Academy being constructed by Baulderstone at the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base at Edinburgh, in northern Adelaide.
“We decided to establish a presence in South Australia earlier this year as part of our national expansion strategy,” said Kevin Davis, CEO of ProjectCentre. The firm identified the state as an emerging hotspot for large construction projects. “These recent contract successes reinforce that our strategy is correct.”
ProjectCentre’s South Australian regional manager, Jake Kearsley, confirmed the rise of construction and mining projects in the southern state.
“There is renewed momentum in the South Australian construction sector. The recent positive announcements on BHP’s $30 billion Olympic Dam expansion will also give confidence for companies such as ProjectCentre in supporting the State’s construction, engineering and mining sectors,” he said.
