Alder Constructions has successfully cemented its position in New South Wales after being awarded a host of local and state government tenders amounting to circa $12 million worth of projects either underway or about to commence.
The Gold Coast-based company announced its expansion into the southern state in March 2021 after establishing a fully operational satellite office at Ballina and an experienced onsite team dedicated to expanding the construction company’s NSW portfolio.
Alder Constructions Building and New South Wales Division Manager Marty Brennan says the company has worked quickly to establish a strong presence in the region and as a result has been rewarded with a raft of projects, all of which have been awarded since June 2021 including tenders with Lismore City Council, NSW Health, and Byron Shire Council.
“Alder Constructions was able to identify New South Wales, particularly the northern sector of the state as a key growth area for the company and then proceed to set up the relevant resources needed to establish a prominent presence in the region,” says Mr Brennan.
“This quick response has seen the company embraced locally and consequently rewarded with an array of celebrated local and state government tenders that will not only keep our dedicated New South Wales team busy, but will no doubt propel further projects in the region for the company.”
Alder Constructions’ $8.2 million contract with Lismore City Council as part of the Lismore Employment Lands Project commenced late 2021. The project will see the construction of the missing section of Oliver Avenue complete to improve heavy vehicle access and to open up more industrial land in the area.
The project, which is expected to be complete in 2022 includes the construction of the Oliver Avenue Link including a new bridge, a roundabout, modifications to an existing roundabout to facilitate B-double movements, and a new public car park.
Construction is nearing completion across four projects in the region including two contracts with NSW Health with the minor refurbishments and upgrades to three Grafton Community Health Facilities and the removal and replacement of two generators at Lismore Hospital.
Furthermore, two projects are nearing completion with Byron Shire Council including the Lighthouse Road Stormwater upgrade project and the Tennyson Street Shared Path which has been identified in the Pedestrian Access And Mobility Plan (PAMP) as a high priority for pedestrians and cyclists.
Mr Brennan says he is proud of his team who have been able to utilise their established working relationships in the region to strengthen and expand Alder Constructions’ growing New South Wales portfolio.
“This successful expansion into New South Wales is attributed to our team’s ability to quickly build credibility in the region fortified by Alder’s vast experience across all facets of civil, building and infrastructure construction, and solid reputation as industry leaders in the field.”
Since moving into the region seven months ago, Alder Constructions has been responsible for the construction of the 21 lot subdivision at the sold-out project, Freedom Caba, and the six lot townhouse development, Freedom at Rainbow Bay.
