Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) has announced the principal contractors for its $158 million Brisbane International Cruise Terminal, paving the way for construction to begin in the coming months.
Wharf construction will be undertaken by Brady Marine & Civil, a specialist marine infrastructure and engineering contractor headquartered in Brisbane.
The civil works and terminal building will be delivered by Hindmarsh, an Australian construction company.
PBPL CEO, Roy Cummins, said that the tender process had attracted a high-quality field, but ultimately the successful contractors provided the right mix of expertise, capabilities and value for money for the project.
Mr Cummins also added that early preparation for the wharf had already begun, with ABFI Steel Group (a local Brisbane-based company) undertaking the task of manufacturing 105 piles, up to 45m long, needed to support the wharf.
Piling is expected to start soon, with wharf construction to follow.
Relocation of approximately 85,000 cubic meters of surcharge (clean sand) is currently underway. Hindmarsh will begin to prepare the site for construction in March, with works starting in April.
