It seems to be all good news for construction projects in 2016 so far.

Here’s a round up of what there is to look forward to in coming months.Chart Data Desk 590011

Already Commenced

Yagan Square, CBD

A food and entertainment precinct that will link rail and bus lines, this project commenced mid February and is predicted to be open by the middle of 2017.

Byford Bridge Replacement

Demolition of the old bridge is scheduled to begin in mid-January and the new concrete bridge is expected to be open to traffic mid-2016.

New Perth Stadium

An ongoing project with a projected end date of December 2017, this $1.1billion project is currently mid-way through construction.

Stadium Rail Project

Accompanying the stadium project, this is likely to take another 12-18 months to complete.

Upcoming Projects

$70 million Hotel in Perth CBD

The CFMEU and online bulletin are tipping the $70million Ritz-Carlton project to be starting before the end of March.

Campbell Barracks, Swanbourne (SAS HQ)

Although details are scarce due to the high-security nature of the project, government press releases revealed  34 buildings on the site will be demolished and new working accommodation blocks built in their place. A new high-tech operations precinct and a more secure entry screening area will also be built.

Major Shopping Centre Redevelopments

Numerous major shopping centres will start redevelopments worth billions of dollars this year. According to the CFMEU, Innaloo, Mandurah, Carousel, Karrinyup and Garden City are all due to commence works by mid 2016. Whitford City is also meant to be beginning a major redevelopment phase with a refurbishment of their food court to kick off first.
