KBR Awarded Contracts for Australia Civil Infrastructure Projects
KBR, Inc. has won multiple contracts to provide services that include design management, project management, and procurement for several major civil infrastructure projects in Australia.
KBR was awarded a contract by Gateway South, to deliver engineering and design services as part of the Darlington Upgrade Project in Adelaide, South Australia. The project forms part of a major upgrade of Adelaide’s north-south road corridor, one of the city’s most important transportation routes. KBR will provide detailed design services for the upgrade of 3.3 kilometers of existing urban arterial road to deliver a lowered motorway to bypass five major intersections, ten new bridges, and infrastructure for a significant intelligent transportation system. Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
KBR will also provide professional services as part of the John Holland Managing Contractor team for early works on the Metro Tunnel project in Victoria, Australia, one of the largest public transport projects in Victoria’s history. The package includes the excavation of two significant shafts in Melbourne’s central business district in preparation for the nine-kilometer twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations. It also includes the extensive relocation and protection of utility services, including gas, power, sewerage and telecommunications, as well as tram infrastructure works.
KBR was awarded a two-year extension by the South Australia Water Corporation (SA Water) for a contract for project management and procurement (PMP) services for capital works projects in the Adelaide metropolitan area, one of the largest government contracts for project and program management services in South Australia. Under the terms, KBR will continue to provide project management, procurement, engineering management and construction management as part of an integrated management team with SA Water for a minimum of two additional years beginning July 1, 2016.
