Lendlease, which has been shortlisted to tender on two contracts worth almost $1 billion, will outline opportunities for subcontractors at a WA Works Sundowner on December 6.

The company has been shortlisted to tender on the metropolitan network contract and the statewide electrical infrastructure contract to Main Roads WA.

It is seeking expressions of interest from contractors with the capability and capacity to deliver subcontract services and materials.

Both contracts are anticipated to be awarded early next year with contract commencement in August 2018. The contract terms are five years with a possible two-year extension.

Scarth says the packages vary in value from about $5 million each for some of the capital works projects down to $5000 for the smaller items such as graffiti and litter removal.

The metropolitan network contract is worth $80-$100m per year, while the statewide electrical infrastructure contract comes in at about $40m annually.

Lendlease, which has been operating in WA for more than 50 years, is also undertaking the $1b Waterbank project in East Perth.
