Georgiou Group has been awarded Water Corporation’s 43km pipeline to connect Denmark to their Lower Great Southern Town Water Supply Scheme.
The proposed route will connect the pipeline at Chorkerup Tank, 30 kilometres north of Albany, then follow the road reserve west along Wilcox Road, Redmond Road West, Kernutts Road, and a small section of Denmark-Mount Barker Road, connecting to the existing tank supplying water to Denmark at Scotsdale, subject to final approvals.
The following can be attributed to CEO Rob Monaci:
“While the project will employ 50-60 people at peak, more than 250 people will work across the project throughout construction with 25% of the workforce coming directly from the local community.
“Despite being a national company, our roots and our history is in Western Australia and the project will be 100% resourced by West Australians.
“Additionally, in an effort to provide sustainable outcomes to the Indigenous community, Georgiou has engaged Impact Services to provide employment opportunities as well as contract management services to the project.
“We look forward to delivering another great water infrastructure project in the Denmark community while strengthening our relationship with Water Corporation.”
