CASC wins contract

Perth-based construction company, CASC, has been awarded a $30 millionCASC wins contract contract to supply formwork and concrete for the 60,000 seat new Perth Stadium.

The contract is expected to create more than 80 new jobs and is one of many expected to be awarded to local companies over the coming months.  More than 100 tenders will be awarded during the stadium’s three-year construction phase, with 5,700 workers estimated to be involved.

CASC is the contracting division of Redcliffe-based Global Construction Services and was part of the team that delivered Perth’s Fiona Stanley Hospital. It will start work shortly on the Burswood site and will be on site for around 12 months. The work will involve providing formwork, concrete supply, concrete pumping and concrete placement. The first concrete slab will be poured in mid-2015.

Stadium construction began in December and, over the next three years, West Australians will see the five-level stadium built to a height of 42 metres. The structure will be built using more than 10,000 tonnes of structural steel and more than 52,000 cubic metres of concrete.

Brookfield Multiplex is part of the Westadium consortium appointed last year to design, build, partially finance and maintain the new Perth Stadium. It is also responsible for sourcing and securing the procurement packages for the construction phase. 

The stadium will be open in time for the 2018 AFL season.
