The design tender for phase one of the $15 million Alice Springs CBD Revitalisation project has been awarded to local company GHD.
The contract, valued at $372 897, involves the design and documentation of shade structures, cooling initiatives, signage, community safe spaces and a lighting masterplan.
GHD General Manager Brian Webster said the company was proud to be involved in the landmark revitalisation project.
“We are committed to regional communities, with a local presence in Alice Springs and a history of operating continuously in the NT for more than 60 years,” he said.
According to Braitling Member Dale Wakefield, the project will support approximately five jobs during the design phase and more than 70 jobs during the construction phase.
“The state government is investing in Alice Springs and in projects that will attract visitors to our CBD, which creates jobs and boosts the local economy,” Mr. Wakefield said.
“Our vision is for a cool, safer, and more modern Alice Springs – the Inland Capital of Australia.”
Design and documentation works will commence in July and are anticipated to be complete by November, with construction expected to commence in early 2020.
