Creating local jobs: private investment projects gearing up
Two significant private investment projects in the Territory have reached major milestones and creating jobs for Territorians.
Seafarms Group Limited has awarded its first contract for on-ground earthmoving work to Territory enterprise Allan King and Sons Construction Pty Ltd (AKSC).
AKSC have recently formalised a consortium agreement with Traditional Owner company, Legune Construction Ltd, an agreement designed to maximise local employment for construction works on Legune Station.
The Westin Darwin Hotel is also progressing, with local contractors invited to bid for project-enabling work packages including the construction of the seawall onsite.
Landbridge, developers of the hotel, has been working collaboratively with the Northern Territory Industry Capability Network to assess local capability and identify potential local contractors and suppliers.
