Garden Island: $213M Wharf Infrastructure Project on the Way

Marise Payne

Minister for Defense, Marise Payne, and Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, today launched an Indigenous joint-venture to deliver the $213 million Bayinguwa critical wharf works project at Garden Island Defense Precinct, the Royal Australian Naval Base in Sydney.

The Bayinguwa Delivery Team is a joint venture between Pacific Services Group Holdings Pty Ltd (PSG Holdings) and Lendlease Engineering Pty Ltd. PSG Holdings, a small to medium enterprise that is 100 per cent Indigenous owned.

PSG Holdings has teamed with Lendlease for the construction of the works in a mutually beneficial venture that gives this Indigenous business a foot-in-the-door to deliver major infrastructure projects.

This project was announced by the Prime Minister in his 2018 Closing the Gap speech and as he said ‘Bayinguwa’ is the Aboriginal name for Garden Island in Sydney,” Minister Payne said.

The engagement of the Bayinguwa Delivery Team is first-and-foremost about delivering high quality works for Garden Island. The Garden Island Bayinguwa Delivery Team will be responsible for managing the demolition of two deteriorated wharves and constructing a single new wharf in their place.

“These works are essential to ensure the Royal Australian Navy can safely berth and maintain its ships at Garden Island, which is the major home-port on the east coast of Australia.”

The total project value is $213 million and construction is due to begin in September 2018 for completion in February 2022.
