Sitzler awarded ADF training area upgrade work
Sitzler has been awarded a $22 million contract by the Australian Department of Defence for the development phase of the $514 million Northern Territory Training Areas and Ranges Project.
The company will manage the design and development of upgrades to facilities and infrastructure at military training areas at Robertson Barracks, Kangaroo Flats, Mount Bundey and Bradshaw.
An estimated $14 million in design sub-consultants will be engaged over the next three to four months to progress the designs for subsequent government and parliamentary approvals.
Subject to approval, construction is scheduled to commence in late 2021 with completion anticipated by 2025.
The upgrade work is being carried out as part of the US Force Posture Initiatives.
Minister for Defence, Linda Reynolds, said: ‘Our Northern Territory training areas and ranges are essential for supporting the joint training needs of the Australian Defence Force and our US partners.
‘This reinvestment is part of the government’s commitment to the Northern Territory made under the 2015 Developing Northern Australia White Paper and the 2016 Defence White Paper.’
