Local contractor wins project

Saskia AdystiAlbany Advertiser

A local construction firm has been appointed to deliver the first stage of Denmark’s new industrial area.

Nigel Palmer Earthmoving has been hired for the multimillion-dollar industrial area contract that will create more than 40 jobs during the construction period.

LandCorp regional general manager Stuart Nahajski said he had received multiple submissions for Denmark’s industrial area contract and was pleased a local contractor had provided a competitive tender proposal.

“Nigel Palmer Earthmoving was able to demonstrate that it had the management structures in place, previous experience and the resources required to deliver the project,” Mr Nahajski said.

The 12.5ha development area is being delivered in stages, with work on the first stage to start this month and completion expected in the middle of the year.

The Shire of Denmark has been working towards building a new industrial area outside the CBD to help free the town centre and reduce the number of truck movements around the main street.

The industrial area project stalled when it was tied to the controversial Denmark East Development Precinct project. Last year, the Shire council voted to separate the $14 million project from the new bridge project.
