Contract awarded for defence infrastructure redevelopment

A joint venture of Downer and CPB Contractors has been awarded a contract to deliver the planning phase of the Australian Defence Force’s proposed Woomera Redevelopment Program in South Australia.

As part of the contract, Downer and CPB will begin design development activities on the project, with the works having an estimated value of between $500 and $750 million. This revenue will be split 50:50 between the two companies.

Under the package (if approved by Government and Parliament) the joint venture will deliver buildings, services and infrastructure works, with construction planned to commence in early 2026.

These works will form part of the Australian Defence Force’s submission for Federal Government approval.

Peter Tompkins, Downer CEO said the company was proud to play a role in Australia’s defence capability.

“We look forward to working closely with the Department of Defence to develop these important facilities, which will support Defence capability for the next 30 years, while also providing an opportunity to support Indigenous and Small-to-Medium Enterprises across regional South Australia,” Tompkins said.

Construction of the project is scheduled to be completed by early 2029.
